Music Monday: "Beautiful Messes"

Last week, I was walking to get some exercise while my kids were in their co-op classes. I used to do a Mom's exercise class during our co-op time, but my schedule shifted this fall, so I'm walking instead. I was walking and listening to Spotify on my phone, and I heard this song. It had a great beat to walk to, and I LOVED the lyrics and message. I was having a less than perfect day that day, and even though I try and try to be "good enough", I fail daily. I am a sinner in need of our graceful God. This song is a powerful reminder that God uses sinners just like me to accomplish His plans on a daily basis. WOW!

Many friends may know Hillary Scott from her popular song, "Thy Will" which is another song of hers that I enjoy. She is the co-lead singer of Lady Antebellum. Her family is quite musical too.  I hope you enjoy this song.




"Beautiful Messes" by Hillary Scott and the Scott family
Are you spinning in a lie that keeps on telling you
That you're not good enough
When you're looking in the mirror
Do you see someone impossible to love?

Full of fragile broken pieces
We're all rough around the edges

We ain't perfect no
We ain't even close
We got holes in our hearts
We got scars we don't show
But all that baggage we
Keep on dragging around
Anytime we start laying it down

Lay it down at the foot of the cross
Give it to the one who can carry it all
Even at our worst, to him we ain't lost causes
Just beautiful messes

We're all David's we're all Mary's
We've been liars, thieves and everything between
But don't forget God used the misfits just like us
To do the most amazing things

So bring your faults, your flaws, your secrets
And watch him use those broken pieces

'Cause we ain't perfect no
We ain't even close
We got holes in our hearts
We got scars we don't show
But all that baggage we
Keep on dragging around
Anytime we start laying it down

Lay it down at the foot of the cross
Give it to the one who can carry it all
Even at our worst, to him we ain't lost causes
Just beautiful messes

No matter where you are right now
Let thy grace come pouring down
It won't run out, it won't run out

We ain't perfect no
We ain't even close
We got holes in our hearts
We got scars we don't show
But all that baggage we
Keep on dragging around
Anytime we start laying it down

Lay it down at the foot of the cross
Give it to the one who can carry it all
Even at our worst, to him we ain't lose causes
Ooh lay it down at the foot of the cross
Give it to the one who can carry it all
Even at our worst, to him we ain't lost causes
Just beautiful messes
Beautiful messes, yeah

Psalm 68:19
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.

Matthew 11:28-30
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

John 10:17-18
The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. Noone takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
