Something Beautiful

I once loved country music and still do but back in March I started to listen to Christian music and the first christian concert I got to see was the Newsboys.   When they played in Cedar Rapids back in June, the open with this song, Something Beautiful.  I didn’t know it at that time, but that song just makes my heart beat a little faster and I feel it inside; calling out to me.

I wanna start it over
I wanna start again
I want a new a new beginning
One without any end
I feel it inside
Calling out to me

So many of us wish we could start it over, start it again.  If your like me, you have made some mistakes and what you are doing isn’t getting you any where.  I was lucky, God help me start it all over even though at the time I5696_105460397006_93874507006_2675602_5503512_n didn’t think it was God who was was working in my life.  You don’t have be like me and be arrested to find a new beginning!  Are you tired, alone, sick or feeling unloved?   Maybe you think you have done too much bad things to others, who would love you?  I know the feeling, I was alone and the devil was taking me on a midnight ride and I didn’t like where we were going.  The night I spent in jail was the closest to hell that I ever want to get!  I know what hell looks like, it’s a 6″ floor drain in a holding cell.  That night I asked the good Lord to save me and to change me and he gave me something beautiful.

Starting over does not have to be a bad thing, don’t wait till God helps you start it over.  Your not alone, more people love you than you know and the first step is just admitting that you are week and need a new start.  It’s when we are alone and weak and don’t let others know the real truth that the devil steps in and takes us for a ride.  It only takes one person to tell you a lie about yourself and if you believe it;  the devil has you.  He wants you to be week and wants you to act like it’s all OK, so everyone else thinks your fine.  It takes trusting your friends and even trusting people you may not know to break the strong hold the devil has on your life.  You have to let just a little of God’s light shine into your life and you will start to see things in a different light.  As you give your life over to Jesus you will make new friends, friends who have been through some of the same bad times.   The devil is a lair and your enemy don’t trust him!

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44 NIV)

It’s when we are down and at our weakest that we find out who we are and what were made of.  They say that the best way to measure a tree is when it’s down but unlike a tree, it’s what we do after were down that counts.  If your down, ask for help and seek out Jesus and turn to the Bible.  The Bible is the only book were you can start in at any place and understand it.  Don’t go it alone, find a church that you like and give it time.  Never give up and know that when you are at your weakest, there is something beautiful out there and it’s called Grace and it’s a gift that’s been paid for you by Jesus Christ.

Your Brother in Christ,

  1. Well said dowg. I admit I am some times suspicious of those who didn’t have to start over, who were never humbled and broken. I praise god for the trials that i cursed when i was going through them. keep up the witness!

    You write the truth….I keep looking for that something beautiful. I found God. and that is one of the most beautiful things I know. My daughter is the other. My friends are others that are beautiful.
    I keep struggling with the pull of satan. I keep turning to God. I turn to my friends who also help keep me inline with Christ.
    You are beautiful too Kent. Your writing is inspiring to me. Keep on writing.
    Thank you for being my friend.

    1. I too struggle with satan and the more distance I put between him and me, the more he wants me back. We have to be careful and watch out for him, like God he too works through others to get to us. He has a bag of tricks and will do any thing to get us on his team.

      You are loved, just as you are.
