Updated Tuesday Tunes: All the Beauty

My good friend Leah used this song in her last young life talk last week. I just love this song! I included the lyrics below, they are truly moving. They really make you think about how in this society we get wrapped up in trying to make ourselves perfect. We stress and worry about our appearances and our bodies, who we date, our accomplishments and achievements and our worldly status but all that truly matters is who we are in Christ and the value the Lord has placed on our lives. We are worth more.
(the video should work now. Enjoy)



All the Beauty-JJ Heller
I know that she's a liar when I look into her eyes
But I believe in every word she says
She's out to start a fire burning everything I have
I can't put it out 'cause it's all inside my head
And then you sing
I hear you sing

You call me lovely
You call me friend
You call me out of death and let me try again
You call me beloved
You call me clean
Then you show me all the beauty that you see in me

I still hear her whisper and sometimes I hear her shout
You're not good enough and you will never be
But if I focus on your singing I can start to tune her out
'Cause you came with a love to set me free

I know that you love me enough to die
And I will try to see the value that you place on me
And you say I'm worthy
