Beautiful, loved, and blessed

T W E N T Y - S I X - L E T T E R S
Wake up.

You’re beautiful, loved and blessed.

When you found me I was just a piece of clay, I was formless... With the breath of life I now live abundantly. All I needed was the potter’s hand... But too much power, can sometimes turn to shame. Too much desire, can sometimes makes you feel the same. But forgiveness is how you win the game. I begged for truth, now I know the truth, and that is when you came and said I was, “Beautiful, loved and blessed.” I’m better than the day before, ‘cause you made me confess that I am beautiful, loved and blessed. When you’re free, you’re really free indeed. All you gotta do is just plant the seed.

A constant battle to stay ahead of the game.
Is anybody famous when everybody wants fame? Always trying to break you down, thinkin’ that’ll raise ‘em up. I just wanna be happy. Come take this bitter cup from me.

If I were ever, to write down my life story, I could truly say through all the fame and glory, that I was just a piece of clay in need of the potter’s hand, cause when you whispered in my ear, the words I so now understand, “Beautiful, loved and blessed.” I’m better than the day before, ‘cause you made me confess that I am beautiful, loved and blessed. When you’re free, you’re really free indeed. All you gotta do is just plant the seed.

Everything you made you said, “That’s good.” Before the fall of man you said, “That’s good.” Everytime I walk in faith, you let me see another day. Before the earth was made you said, “I will lead the way, and you’ll go far.” Knowledge and understanding, understanding is good. And when I wake up in the morning, all I hear in my hood is people saying that they’re, “Beautiful, loved and blessed.” When you rescue me from the darkness, our hearts just must confess. Beautiful, loved and blessed. When you’re free, you’re free indeed, all you gotta do is just plant the seed.

Hey, hey, hey, wake up it’s a new day. Hey, hey, hey, wave your hands in the air and say, “Beautiful, loved and blessed.” You rescued me from the darkness in the wilderness. No matter what the challenge, I always pass the test.

That’s what I am, beautiful. I don’t mean to put nobody down, still I must confess that I am...Beautiful, that’s what I am. When you wanna give up, don’t cause you know you always got a friend.
