Here before your altar
I am letting go of all I've had
Of every motive, every burden
Everything that's of myself.

And I just wanna wait 
On you my God
And I just wanna dwell 
On who you are.

Beautiful, beautiful
Oh I am lost for more to say
Beautiful, beautiful
O Lord, Your beautiful to me.

Here in your presence
I am not afraid of brokenness.
To wash your feet
With humble tears
Oh I would be poured out
Till nothings left.

And I just wanna wait
On you my God
I just wanna dwell 
On who you are

Beautiful, beautiful
Oh I am lost for more to say
Beautiful, beautiful 
O Lord, Your beautiful to me

When we usually think of something that is beautiful it is a person, or maybe something in nature such as a rainbow or flower. It may even be something someone made. As a woman, I think of beauty in many ways, the most often probably being the beauty of the physical person.

Over this last weekend, I got to watch something beautiful. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I was given the privilege to watch, and experience, dead things being given new life; souls that had wandered, again finding the path; trust in the midst of uncertainty; and love that covers the deepest of hurts. What am I talking about? I am telling you that I got to watch Christ transform lives!


More specifically, I was given the privilege of being used for God's great work in the life of my sister. Hallelujah! I'm just a little excited ; )  My sister and I have always been close, but now we can share in something that is a huge part of my life, and has been an area of some disconnect between the two of us. Now it is something we can share in and encourage one another. How beautiful!

Even more so, is that the work that God has done in her life is even now affecting the life of my niece who lives near her. As she has spent much time investing in our niece's life, she couldn't wait to share with her what God did over this weekend, and my niece was just so excited she wanted God to change her life too! Again, there is nothing more beautiful!

The amazing thing about all this is that they were not the only two touched by Christ's love. So many women, including myself, were able to experience and feel His presence so closely. I'm going to share some of what God taught me in another blog, but I just wanted to emphasize that this is
