God makes messy things beautiful

We gave Tomás the Slugs & Bugs Under Where album for Christmas.  It has lots of fun songs and it's one of those CDs for kids that is actually not bad to listen to as an adult.  The first Slugs & Bugs & Lullabyes album is also quite good. 

Anyway, in the one we recently bought, the first song says:

God makes messy things beautiful
when you put them in His hands.
God makes messy things beautiful
like only He can.
After the showers, look for the flowers
and you'll find out it's trutiful
God makes messy things beautiful.

Of course, this is simply stated and uses a made up word so it's fun for kids, but it is a reminder that I need sometimes.  There are so many things that either I mess up or are just messed up in general and remembering that He can turn it into something beautiful gives me such comfort and peace. 

For my favorite story of God making messy things beautiful, check out the story of Joseph in Genesis chapters 37-45 (minus chapter 38.  That's a brief strange story about one of Joseph's brothers.)
