31 Days of Song: “Something Beautiful”

Well, here we are at the end of this series.  Thank you if you’ve stuck with me throughout.  I hope you’ve enjoyed it and the length of the posts has been about right, but if you’ve got any ideas on how I could do another 31 Days series differently, please comment.

 

Proverbs 31:30 says:  “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised”, and in her latest devotional, Gwen Smith hits the spot when she says:  “True beauty begins when we hold tightly to the truth of God and allow the truth of God to hold tightly to us.”  When a woman pours very expensive perfume on Jesus, one translation words His response this way:  “She has done a beautiful thing to Me. …  Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her” (Matthew 26:10, 13).

 

You will have gathered by now that I like story-songs, and this tells the story of the woman with the perfume.  Gwen has written quite a few songs, but this was the one that impressed me from the first time I heard it, and I thought it would be a nice end to the series.  Let’s go into November, and the rest of our lives, looking for opportunities to do something meaningful for Jesus.

  1. Thanks for the song and devotion feature! What a lovely and meaningful surprise. Hope each song I write and sing points to the One who makes all of our broken beautiful.

    Blessings and Grace in Christ,
    Gwen Smith

    • Wow – it’s quite an honour when you feature someone’s song and they take the time to comment. Thank you, and for the devotionals that you, Mary and Sharon consistently write for us. I really appreciate them.
