youre beautiful.

Thursday, November 10, 2011

this past weekend at rockbridge we sang this song. and i am in love with it. im listening to it on repeat. its by phil wickham and the song gives me chills. heres a little listen for you.

the lyrics are so simple and so true.

I see your face in every sunrise
The colors of the morning are inside your eyes
The world awakens in the light of the day
I look up to the sky and say... You’re Beautiful

I see your pow’r in the moonlit night
Where planets are in motion and galaxies are bright
We are amazed in the light of the stars
Its all proclaiming who you are... You’re beautiful

I see you there hanging on a tree
You bled and then you died and then you rose again for me
Now you are setting on your heavenly throne
Soon you will be coming home... You’re Beautiful

When we arrive at eternity’s shore
Where death is just a memory and tears are no more
We’ll enter in as the wedding bells ring
Your bride will come together and we’ll sing... You’re Beautiful

the song does such a wonderful job of explaining some of the characteristics of God. beautiful. surrounding. powerful. mighty. compassionate. life-giving.

and that last little section. gives me so many chills. remember that time i walked down the aisle? and i look back and think about the fact that it will happen to me again one day. and this song explains this. its a reality and what a beautiful day that will be. i pray you know this too. that theres something greater out there thats going to happen one day. because the love that jesus had for me and for you, we get to be his bride and join him in everlasting life. sometimes i think i know that in my head but dont always feel it in my heart. but its going to happen and its going to be glorious. 

i imagine it a lot like july 24. because that day i never felt closer to jesus. and i wore the prettiest dress possible. and  i felt more beautiful than ever. and i thinks that because jesus lives in me and wanted to show a a little tiny piece of what that would look like.

imagine for yourself. just for a minute today. think about what the Lord has done for you and the fact that the most beautiful day in your life will be the day you walk to him on eternity's shore.

 the joy on this day and in this moment above is only a taste of what it will actually be like.
