Beautiful, Beautiful by Francesca Battistelli [Music Monday]

This is one of those songs that always makes me stop and say a quick prayer of thanks. It reminds me that my identity comes not from what I do, but from who I belong to. That God takes whatever mess we’re living in, cuts right through it, and makes beauty happen. That not many days are 100% perfect from start to finish, but God’s love shines through the darkness to give us just a tiny glimpse of hope.

I’m not sure exactly why, but God speaks to me through this song every time I hear it. As you begin this week I pray that God shines through your darkness and helps you see the beauty in the midst of the mess.

Happy Monday folks!
