“Marks Of Beauty”

I believe in a God that makes everything beautiful in its own time. I believe in a God that can take the scars in your life and heal them, and give you beauty in place of them. I believe in a God that loves to surprise us with His beauty and redemption. I believe in God who can renew and resurrect what feels dead inside you.

Mat Pitt of the Christian tv show, The Basement, wears a bracelet that says “Wear your scars proudly.” Because of Jesus and what He did for us on the cross, we no longer have to be ashamed of the scars of what we’ve been through. We can rest in the God of healing and beauty, knowing that He works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

It may not seem like it right now but there is a purpose for your pain. Hold on. Hold on to a God who makes beauty from pain.

Marks Of Beauty

I haven’t always known your plan but I’ve always felt your hand holding tight to mine. I’ve often wondered what you were thinking putting me in a land that I could never understand. But I’ve always had faith that you could see a bigger picture than me. That you heal scars beautifully.

I’ve often asked you to spare me from pain, but I’m somehow becoming thankful for my scars. Through the darkness I’ve found the light, or maybe it’s found me. Your grace has made my scars marks of beauty. Marks of beauty.

You said I should rejoice when these troubles come my way, but that seems impossible to a scared heart like mine. Oh will you make me brave? Brave enough to believe you. Believe that you make all things beautiful in their own time.

{Repeat Chorus}

I believe you work all things out for the good of those who love you and are called according to your purpose. I believe you are healing my scars beautifully. I believe your making me beautiful in my own time. I believe these scars add depth to my life.

{Repeat Chorus 2x}
