Music Monday [Someone Worth Dying For]

Every person asks the question at least once in their life..."What is my purpose?"  Or "Do I have a purpose?"

This song by mikeschair is one of affirmation that we are "something beautiful" to God.  I don't care who you are, or what you do, the "something beautiful" message is one that is needed in today's world.  If we all could realize our beauty in Christ, we would be so free, so bold, so filled with purpose, that nothing would stop us from being the people God has created us to be.

You might be the wife,
Waiting up at night
You might be the man, 
Struggling to provide
Feeling like it's hopeless 

Maybe you're the son,
Who chose a broken road
Maybe you're the girl,
Thinking you'll end up alone
Praying God can you hear me?
Oh God are you listening?

Am I more than flesh and bone?
Am I really something beautiful?
Yeah, I wanna believe, I wanna believe that
I'm not just some wandering soul
That you don't see and you don't know
Yeah I wanna believe, Jesus help me believe that I
Am someone worth dying for

I know you've heard the truth that God has set you free
But you think you're the one that grace could never reach
So you just keep asking, what everybody's asking


You're worth it, you can't earn it
Yeah the Cross has proven
That you're sacred and blameless
Your life has purpose

And you are more than flesh and bone
Can't you see you're something beautiful
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe
He wants you to see, He wants you to see
That you're not just some wandering soul
That can't be seen and can't be known
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe that you
Are someone worth dying for

My favorite line is "
you're the one that grace could never reach."  How many times do you feel you have messed up one too many times and unworthy of God's great love??  The words here give reassurance that we have purpose. Not an accident, not a blob of flesh and bones, not a wandering soul.  We are unique, God's creation, and something pretty.  We, you and me, are have worth in God's eyes.  We have worth in God's heart.  I like that.
