Sometimes the Night is Beautiful

I love this song! I will never get tired of it, the words are so powerful and the video pictures in this are done very well.
I am always reminded of this song when walking through tough times...the line "sometimes the night was beautiful" just brings tears to my eyes.

The "night", the darkest hour, the loneliest most painful time...can be so beautiful when we find HIM there. He has made so many dark times in my life beautiful by His love.

I have also sung these words by faith when I was so confused at the course my life had taken..."step by step You'll lead me, and I will follow YOU all of my days!"

If you have time, watch it all the way through, the ending is so powerful.

I love Rich Mullins! Here is one of my favorite quotes...

"So if I stand, let me stand on the promise that You will see me through...

And if i can't let me fall on the Grace that first brought me to You!"

I LOVE this song, too. When The Boy was in Colorado this summer, the one thing he said over and over was that he felt like he could reach up and touch heaven. I loved that.
Hugs...Susan

Love Rich Mullins too. I remember the first time I drove past the place on the road where my husband had died in a car accident, I had Rich Mullins song, "Hold Me Jesus" playing as tears streamed down my face.

Jesus... He's all we need, one step at a time. Jesus is with us all the way!

Sometimes it's only after the night is over that I see the beauty of it.

Sometimes th night is so dark. You feel as if it will never end--but it does. And when the sun comes up you realize that He was sitting right there with you all through the night. The same tear stains that are on your cheeks are on His.
He is our God and I will always love Him.
He is sweet and pure love.

Sue @ praise & coffee said...

Ruth, Oh I hope so!

Sharon, what a beautiful picture you paint.

I also love that song! Somehow it's even more powerful to read the words when they're written out though. Thanks!

Rich Mullins is one of my all time favorite writers and singers. Thank you for posting that! Have you read his biography "An Arrow Pointing to Heaven?" It was a life chamging book for me.

Rachel Marie said...

love it! yesterday i found myself singing that song as i walked on my treadmill and the "step by step you'll lead me" took on new meaning as i considered my need to be led by Him in my actual steps each day and in my heart!

Sue,
Need your e-mail address, this is the only way for me to reach you....not that I am complaining! Love that song too, can't help but sing along. There is a new(ish) song out that I love and always reminds me of you but for the life of me I cannot remember it right now. Anyhow, great blog. Let me know when is a good day for me to drop by so I can run you over some cookies.
