Whatever It Takes

So what's beautiful in this life?

1. When someone lost becomes found
2. When someone broken is restored
3. When someone unlovely is loved
4. When someone undeserving receives forgiveness
5. When someone proud becomes humble
6. When someone fails but gets back up again
7. When someone leaves but comes back home
8. When someone dies so that another might live
9. When someone loves when its easier to hate
10. When someone says "Forgiven" while the crowd shouts "Crucify"

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." PHILIPPIANS 4:8

RECONCILIATION - written by: Jonathan Seller

So many times we feel like we have blown it
So many times we wish we could turn things around
So many times we wish it weren't over
So many times Grace is no where to be found

So many times we think of the past
So many times we fear it's remains
So many times we hope for tomorrow
So many times we find yesterdays pain


Memories of what could be, Dreams of what may never be
And Grace is no where to be found...


In Christ we find restoration
In Christ the power to forgive
In Christ the reason for each other
In Christ the only reason to live

In Christ our hearts find freedom
In Christ a sweet serenity
In Christ the broken leave the ashes
In Christ the lost is now redeemed


So when you feel like it's over
So when you feel like it's too late
So when you feel like it's too far gone
I'll be here waiting, I'll take you back!
