Your love is restoring all things
You are making all things new.
Your love is restoring all things
ou are making all things new.


I can still remember my dark days
Spinning my wheels in my old ways,
Breathe heavy, forehead sweating, working with all my own might trying to get ahead,
Pause long enough to look around and realize that everything i try to change
Just. stays. the same.

I can still remember lonely days
Trying so hard to make it on my own,
Ignoring what God said about man and being alone.
I heard you want to make me magnificent,
But I won't grow when I'm too iron sharpening iron deficient.
And all the good soil in my heart is no good if I'm not planted in a good garden.
I wish I knew sooner how desperately I need to be known

I can still remember my junkie days
If I thought it'd make me feel for a moment, I'd try anything once
But once was one to many
I'd deny drugs for less overt opiates,
But I'd be poppin' pride
Lighting up with lust,
And smoking on so much sweet self righteousness you'd think I was trying to overdose.
Try to hide from heaven till I came too from my black out then go back out and try it all over 
Look down to the fake freedom I held on to so tightly
And find that I chained myself up with my choices
And I remember thinking inside the cell of my sin,
I've landed and looked around 
And I found it so confusing,
How in hell could you make anything beautiful 

Your love is restoring all things
You are making all things new.
Your love is restoring all things
ou are making all things new.


But I remember the day that you saved me.
I remember sitting in a crowded room yet feeling like I was completely alone with you,
Completely adored by you,
Completely floored by you,
How could you love me this lavishly
This scandalously,
How could you look at me and see something worth saving?
I remember the pastor's word reverberating in my head for days
Value is determined by what someone pays
So this paradox plays out like this:
Though my life is in itself worthless,
You have made me priceless because of the price of your purchase
And I remember you reaching into my chest
Wrap your hand around my heart 
Squeeze twice
And for the first time in my life felt it really beating
And you whispering into the center of my soul
I love you, my child 
My masterpiece
I have designed you with great purpose.

Please remember that time as we know it is a wild force to be reckoned with
So let's reckon it.
Don't you know that every second that ticks on your clocks
Is an attempt to harness the moment that we're never quite able to put our finger on
Because the present darts back and forth from already and not yet
From just missed it and just wait
And maybe our past is already wasted,
But the future is a fruit that may never  be tasted
Today is the day of salvation
Of transformation by Messianic revelation,
Of inspiration by divine intervention
Of restoration via previous propitiation
Of redefinition of intention and destination
Today is the day of initiation into this lifelong re-creation,
Today is the day I trust in this process and purpose that you put into motion before there was anything to be before.
Today I say yes to being yours
Rejoicing and giving glory as I evermore adore you as you continue to do you like you have done will do and are doing 

Your love is restoring all things
You are making all things new.
Your love is restoring all things
ou are making all things new.
