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.

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}

  1. Krystal, I love the term 'marks of beauty' --I have learned lately that the wound is the same healing place for the one beautiful (scar)Love seal. Love enters in and restores it all! wow!
    I love what you shared here: "I believe in a God that loves to surprise us with His beauty and redemption." I agree too! take care, and have a lovely day! hugs, luv Jenn

  2. Thanks Jenn! It's so true, love does restore it all. I think that's a concept that is so hard to believe when you're in the midst of pain. It can be so hard to believe that God can and will take the scars in your life and make them into something beautiful. Thankfully that is the kind of God we serve. Thank you for the feedback Jenn, have a lovely day! :)
