My favourite part of the song:
Tell me your story, show me your wounds
And I’ll show you what Love sees when Love looks at you
Hand me the pieces, broken and bruised
And I’ll show you what Love sees when Love sees you
I see what I made in your mother's womb
I see the day I fell in love with you.
I see your tomorrows, nothing left to chance
I see My Father's fingerprints
I see your story, I see My name
Written on every beautiful page
You see the struggle, you see the shame
I see the reason I came.
This song is so beautiful. I don't think there's anything more encouraging than the knowledge that our sin, shame, and weakness does not alter our worth in God's eyes or the love, mercy and grace that He gives us day by day. The weaker I am, the more His strength can be shown in me.
I love that through Christ I have no shame, guilt, or even a past that has power to haunt me. I only have a bright future because "He who begun a good work in me will complete it." Sometimes though it's so hard to believe it. It seems to good to be true. The feelings of shame and guilt on top of the pain of the past, can drown out the truth. But the Word of God does not change and Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. I am so thankful that even when all I see is chaos and shame, He is working behind the scenes to shape me into the person He wants me to be.
