My Testimony - the story behind Beautiful in You

How to begin...

Childhood

I grew up on a remote farm in Australia. I spent a lot of time alone, and my closest companions were the warm wind, the rugged mountains and the stillness of the evening. I often sang to an audience of thousands of sheep, across the acres of uninhabited land my voice would roar over hill and vale.
I grew up in a churchgoing family. My Mum got born-again when I was 3, and my earliest memories of Christianity are of her and her friends playing the guitar and singing in our loungeroom, and me not being allowed to take part! I remember my Mum praying alone in her room. I also remember my Mum praying for my brother to be healed from recurrent ear absysses - and I witnessed a miracle when the ear absyss left him and never returned. When I was 10, a charismatic minister came to our church, and for the first time I experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit. I used to pray: 'Lord Jesus, please fill me to bubbling over with your joy' and He would fill me with joy!

I was also exposed to a lot of other things as a child, and had my first seance when I was 11. By the age of 14 I had turned my back on God and was deeply involved in teenage binge drinking and rebellion. My Dad would often come home from the pub very drunk, and we would talk. He seemed to admire a certain amount of non-conformity, but I only revealed the tip of the iceberg to him, as I knew he wouldn't approve of the extent of my wild adolescence. Sometimes he tried to warn me, and lamented that he hadn't been able to write an instruction manual to life for me. I arrogantly answered:

'There is an instruction manual on life, Dad. It's called the Bible, and I don't read it.'

My parents showered me with affection and praised even the smallest accomplishments, but I was riddled with insecurity, and became bulimic. My mother was concerned about my weight loss, and even asked me if I was on drugs. I wasn't. Yet...


University
When I left for university at age 17, I was rebellious, headstrong and living 1000km away from my parents at college, I overcame my insecurity with drugs and alcohol. I got into every kind of trouble I could lay my hands on. Before long, I had a drug problem.

One day at university, a friend of mine confronted me. Ironically, she had to be drunk to be bold enough to pose the question to me: 'What is wrong with your reality, Meg?' I said there was nothing wrong, and she went on: 'Then why are you trying so hard to escape it?' Her words cut deep, and soon afterwards, I left university.

I went home to my parents, who were incredibly supportive, considering that I was risking not completing the university education they were paying for. During that time at home, I told my Mum I wanted to lead on a Christian youth camp. She was very surprised, and I remember her asking: 'But why? You aren't a Christian'. I gave her a humanitarian explanation, but God had a plan, because it was on that camp that I gave my heart to JesusChrist. I knew the gaping chasm inside me could be filled by only One, and that it was Him I'd been starving for all those years. I returned to university, but fell straight back into my old habits. I eventually left again, and finished my degree externally.

Adulthood
Though I always had a good job, and from the outside, probably appeared quite successful, my reliance on drugs continued. When I was 24, I got engaged. My fiancee and I went to our pastor and asked for pre-marriage counselling. He gave it to us straight: saying that although we claimed to be Christians, our lives were not founded on Christ. He said that our value systems and beliefs were humanitarian and that our marriage was doomed to failure if we didn't allow some changes to be made. We were deeply offended, and left the church. Afterwards we were married in another church. I gave up illegal drugs and cigarettes when I got married at age 24, but I later formed a dependence on prescription drugs and sleeping pills. Eventually I went cold-turkey off the anti-depressants I'd been prescribed, but to numb the pain, I often binge drank. At times I was suicidal.

I remember driving my red convertible home from work, and I was miserable. I cried out to God: 'I'm a born-again Christian, I'm supposed to have joy. Where is the joy?' The prediction of our former pastor proved true, and my husband and I sought marriage counselling at our new church, but they were booked solid for eighteen months. We doubted our marriage would last the wait.

Around that time, we decided to leave Australia and travel around the world. I think we just wanted to escape our problems, not realising that we would take them with us everywhere we went. It seems foolish in hindsight, however, again, God had a plan.

My new CD 'Beautiful In You' chronicles the truths that are helping to build a new foundation for my life. I'm not beautiful because of what's on the outside. My weight, my hair, my clothes - these are not the essence of my, or any woman's beauty. Beauty comes from within.


My prayer is that these songs will resonate as true in the hearts of women everywhere. If you long to be set free from insecurity and fear, these songs are for you.

If you want to know true liberty - these songs are for you.

LYRICS:

Track 1
Be Everything

You formed me
You made me
You know me
You said that I could trust you to provide my need
You told me to give and rely on you
So why donât I?

Lord Jesus
Messiah
Redeemer
Be Everything, be everything, be everything
Lord Jesus
Messiah
Redeemer
Be Everything, be everything, be everything
To me

Your purposes for me are beautiful
You said of all that I desire you plan more
You gave me divine wings and said to soar
So why donât I?

You gave your life for me held nothing back
You said no matter what I go through youâd be near
You told me to love others without fear
So why donât I?
You are my strength you are my song
In You is where I belong
Help me to see
Help me to be all that you are

Track 2
Beautiful in You

Ugly shrinking from curses
That scorched the dew in my heart
I am
Covering every original painting
With sheets of grey

You reach in and call me a liar
Iâm burning from your loveâs fire
Iâm
Trying not to look into the mirror
Of your truth

Whispers so unfamiliar
Are filling the cave of my mind
With your
Persistent echo repeating
In my thoughts, dreams, and conscious life
You whisper

Youâre beautiful
âCause Iâm beautiful
So thereâs beautiful in you
You
Youâre beautiful
âCause Iâm beautiful
So thereâs beautiful in you

Halfway trusting and timid
Still peering through my own memories
I am
Hopeful feeling the strength
Of your heartbeat over mine

Slowly reaching the mountain peak
Finding others who, torn and weak
Are Starving
Softly I start so speak the words
Youâve embossed on my heart:


Shine Smile be Boldly Brilliant
Love Perfect Drives out Fear
Look in your deepest person
And youâll find
When He is living there


Sing Loud with Deep Conviction
Blessings will follow near
Invite the creator of the universe
To take you and Make You beautiful



Track 3
Harvestime

Itâs Harvestime
Labourers Arise
Gird up your loins
And spread your tentpegs wide
Itâs Harvestime
All the fields are white
With souls to win for Christ
âCause itâs Harvestime

Spread the word itâs the harvest season
Brethren all obey His command
Make disciples of all the nations
Spread the gospel all through the land

Tell your neighbours tell your work colleagues
Pray for wisdom boldness and grace
In His perfect power weâll lead them
To meet Jesus Christ face to face

Donât doubt donât fear
Jesus Christ has promised us that He is always near
Be strong be brave
The Holy Spirit dwelling in us raised Jesus from the grave

Track 4
Your Name

Holy
Your Name is Holy
Your Name is Holy, my Jesus, my Lord
Holy
Your Name is Holy
Your Name is Holy, my Jesus, my Lord
And I worship you, yes I worship you
And I worship you, all of my days

All of my days
And I worship you, yes I worship you
And I worship you, all of my days

Track 5
I Wanna Sing

I wanna sing
I wanna sing
I wanna sing of all Your praises
Of all your praises
I wanna sing of all Your praises

Cause Youâre Faithful Lord
(My God is Faithful)
And Youâre Holy Lord
(My God is Holy)
And your Wonderful
The God of heaven
The God of my heart

I wanna think
I wanna think
I wanna think of all Your goodness
Of all Your goodness
I wanna think of all Your goodness

Cause You made me Lord
(My God is fearful)
And You saved me Lord
(My God is good)
And you gave your everything
The God of heaven
The God of my heart

I wanna speak
I wanna speak
I wanna speak of all Your promise
Of all Your promises
I wanna speak of all Your promises

Cause Your Word is true
(My God donât lie no)
And Your Spirit dwells

And my life is hid in
The God of heaven
The God of my heart

I wanna sing

I wanna sing of all Your praises
Of all your praises

Track 6
Peace

When I think about the world in blood and wars
When I think about a child beaten behind closed doors
When I think about a future of guns and laws
His words of hope, His words come back to me,
How he said:

Peace I leave with you
My peace I give you
I do not give to you as the world gives
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid

When I think about the youth drugged and asleep
When I think about the aged abandoned, poor and weak
When I think about eternity in darkness deep
His words of hope, His words come back to me
How He said:

When I think about the cross, the blood and shame
When I think about the day He rose again
When I think about the Spirit Who falls like rain
His words of hope, His words come back to me
How He said:




Track 7
Authority

There is authority
In the name of Jesus
All I must do is to believe

There is a name
Above all names
That drives out fear and doubt and shame

There is authority
In the name of Jesus
All I must do is to believe

At the word of Jesus
The storm was still
When asked to heal
He said, I will
Yet greater things
He said weâd do
When we speak His name in faith and truth

At the Word of Jesus
The demons fled
And he called Lazarus
From the dead
Yet greater things
He said weâd do
When we speak His name in faith and truth

At the Word of Jesus
The earth was light
And by His Spirit
Not our power or might
These greater things
He said weâd do
When we speak His name in faith and truth

Track 8
You are making me whole

The night is still
Itâs warm outside
My heart is filled
With a thousand whys
Where was my God
When I was young
Just look at the damage theyâve done

Regret and pain
The guilt and shame
I want to find someone else to blame
A light turns on
Somewhere inside
And I canât continue to hide

As I experience your kindness
I can smile
And as you wash me in your mercy
My softened heart begins to cry
And as I let your Spirit heal and purify

You are making me whole
You are making me whole
You are making me whole inside.

The music plays
We start to dance
Your leading now
Nothing left to chance
You softly speak
Of the future road
Old failures become stepping stones

Assured hope
And faith now grow
I trip, I rise, thereâs so far to go
You turn my gaze
The sky is clear
Your presence has swallowed all fear

Track 9
You stand alone

Who among the gods is like you oh Lord
Who is like you
Who is like you

Majestic in Holines
Awesome in Glory
Working wonders
In our lives
In all we see

You stand alone my God
You stand alone my King
You stand alone my God
There is none like you
There is none like you
