All Things New.

We’ve got an artist making their first ever #MusicMonday appearance this week! Give it up for Brett Younker and his song, “All Things New.”

(If you can’t see the video in your RSS feed or e-mail, just click here.)

Nothing quickens me to worship like the redemptive love of our heavenly Father.

God makes all things new in our stories. It’s a central theme in the Bible. Throughout the Bible, God has taken broken men and women of the Bible and used their lives for something great. People like Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Rahab, David, Peter, Paul, and many others saw the broken, messed up parts of their lives absolutely turned around by a God whose grace and love overshadows even the darkest of sins.

Chances are that you, much like me, have parts of your life where you wish you could go back and hit the “redo” button. Chances are that you, like me, have things in your life you wish God would have done differently, or maybe things in your life you just don’t understand (perhaps you are walking through a time like that right now). But one of the things that moves me is that the storyline of the Bible is that God uses difficult, confusing, and messed up people and situations as the platform for some of his most powerful work. I trust that in the Scripture. I trust that through the experience of my own life. And I pray that for those of you reading today that the words of this song might sink in: All hope is not lost, for You make all things new.
