Songs that have inspired me #1: Beautiful | MercyMe

You know those moments when you’re so down that nothing anyone says helps? In these times, Lord uses other means of bringing us up. For me, it has largely been music. It helps that we’ve been blessed to live in an era where Lord is using talent everywhere to bring us wonderful songs that speak to us and bring us closer to Him. I thought I’d share some of them with the world, so they may help you, the way they’ve helped me.

Beautiful by MercyMe was one of those blessings that stare right in your face but you don’t really see them until you’re in need of them. About 3 years ago, I was going through a “storm” and felt abandoned and alone. My self esteem had reduced to zero. I had lost all sense of purpose and direction and that’s when I really heard this song. I was travelling, with my headphones on and my playlist on shuffle, when the words of this beautiful songs stood lingering in my head.

This song was like a warm hug on a cold winter’s night. Telling me that I matter to Someone. Telling me that I’m “made for so much more” than all that I’ve lost. Telling me that I am loved and more importantly, cherished. THESE WERE THE VERY WORDS I NEEDED TO HEAR. Not that I am physically beautiful, but that whatever had happened wasn’t the end of the world. That the God who loves me, not only gave His life for me at some time in history, but that very God is concerned that I am upset right now and chose to encourage me and made me feel loved again. Hope this song speaks to you too!

Stay tuned for more such songs!
