beautiful things

i went to group last wednesday–SPU’s weekly worship through scripture, reflection and music. i long for these opportunities to worship. as much as i tell my worship team at church that they can (should?) worship while leading, it’s not the same. sometimes you need to be able to just be still, close your eyes and wait on God. no instrument waiting to be played, no mic in hand. and that evening, that’s what i did. i went to group by myself, not knowing anyone, sat down and listened and sang and prayed.

the team opened worship with the song ‘beautiful things‘ by gungor [michael + lisa gungor + band]. the lyrics go:

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

sometimes we find ourselves in a place, in a space where we don’t think anything could grow up from the ground wherein we stand. then we are reminded that our situations are not permanent. God is still working, making beautiful things out of dust. out of us.
