Nothing Is Wasted

Verse Card: The Daily Grace Company

Have you ever asked yourself why things in your life have unfolded the way they have?  Have you ever made the proclamation, either mentally or verbally, that all that hard work, all that sacrifice, all the passion, all of the dreams and plans, all of the excitement and hope- all of it, was wasted?  Maybe you know it wasn't all wasted, but you just can't understand WHY it didn't turn out the way your planned it.

You're not alone, my friend.  I think for each of us, there has been one or two of those inescapable seasons of life.  And especially for the passionate dreamers and determined hard-workers, those seasons can leave the heart and mind battered and bruised.

Jason Gray sings a song that hits me right where it counts every time I listen to it.  Just read the words, and let it sink in.  Is this you?

"The hurt that broke your heart and left you trembling in the dark, feeling lost and alone- will tell your hopes a lie.  What if every tear you cry will seed the ground where joy will grow.  

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.

Nothing is wasted.  Nothing is wasted.  In the hands of our redeemer, nothing is wasted.

When hope, is more than you can bear and it's too hard to believe it could be true, and your strength
 fails you halfway there, you can lean on me and I'll believe for you.  And in time, you will believe it

Nothing is wasted.  Nothing is wasted.  Sometimes we are waiting in the sorrow we have tasted.

But joy will replace it.  Nothing is wasted in the hands of our redeemer.  Nothing is wasted!"
