I have been singing this song all day. I think, sometimes, God brings it to my mind, so I don't forget just how broken and scared and confused I was when I finally accepted Him as my personal Savior. I had grown up 'knowing about God' and doing Bible lessons as a child, going to Sunday School, Children Bible Clubs (CEF) etc. I had even made professions a couple times and was baptized a couple times. BUT, in 1975 when I finally truly accepted Jesus as my own personal Savior for forgiveness of my sin, I have never regretted that decision!
(NOTE - this was not written by me - I make NO claims to it.)
Something Beautiful,Something Good
Something beautiful, something good
All my confusion He understood
All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife
But he made something beautiful of my life
If there ever were dreams
That were lofty and noble
They were my dreams at the start
And hope for life's best were the hopes
That I harbor down deep in my heart
But my dreams turned to ashes
And my castles all crumbled, my fortune turned to loss
So I wrapped it all in the rags of life
And laid it at the cross.
Listen to it here:
