I've loved this song for a long time. It has been appropriate for so many situations in my life. This morning when it came out of my speakers from my ipod it reminded me that no matter what we are experiencing in our lives, God can make something beautiful out of it if we just submit ourselves to Him and lift up our open hands to let Him do the "making". Here are the words you can listen to it below:
Make Something Beautiful
Words and music by Laura Story and Ed Cash

When I'm at the point of breaking, at the place where I resign
And I'm at the stage of shaking my head as I look back on my life
When I'm halfway through the grieving, but not quite through the ache,
When I cannot see the ending or which road I'm supposed to take
All I know to do is lift my hands to You.
Take all of my life, all of my life,
And make something beautiful.
I open my hand, trusting Your plan.
Make something beautiful, so all will see
Your work in me as You make something beautiful.
When I'm tired of pretending and I can't recall my lines
Do I say I'm barely breathing or just say I'm doing fine?
I admit there is a yearning for the hurting to subside
But not at the risk of missing
What you're doing in my life.
And all I know to do is lift my hands to you.
