Nothing Is Wasted by Jason Gray


One of my favorite albums right now is A Way To See In The Dark by Jason Gray. Honest, beautiful, insightful songs about brokenness, hardship, weakness, love, beauty, redemption, and the faithfulness of Jesus. Really speaks to me. It's what's hot on my iPod right now.

Some of my favorites are "Remind Me Who I Am" and "Without Running Away." 
But the one song I'm really tuned into now is "Nothing Is Wasted." I think no matter what you might be going through, or perhaps what you've already been through, this song can speak to all of us in some way. I've posted he lyrics below. I hope they can help encourage you in your journey.

Love and Blessings, 

~ Michelle

Nothing Is Wasted

The hurt that broke your heart 

And left you trembling in the dark 
Feeling lost and alone
Will tell you hope’s a lie 
But what if every tear you cry 
Will seed the ground where joy will grow

And nothing is wasted

Nothing is wasted
In the hands of our Redeemer
Nothing is wasted

It's from the deepest wounds

That beauty finds a place to bloom
And you will see before the end 
That every broken piece is 
Gathered in the heart of Jesus 
And what's lost will be found again

And nothing is wasted

Nothing is wasted
In the hands of our Redeemer
Nothing is wasted

And nothing is wasted

Nothing is wasted
In the hands of our Redeemer
Nothing is wasted 

From the ruins
From the ashes 

Beauty will rise 

From the wreckage 
From the darkness 

Glory will shine

Jason Gray
