Song Lyrics:

Beautiful One
Wonderful, so wonderful is Your unfailing love
Your cross and spoken mercy over me
No eye has seen no ear has heard
No heart could fully know
How glorious how beautiful You are

Beautiful One I love
Beautiful One I adore
Beautiful One my soul must sing

Powerful, so powerful Your glory fills the skies
Your mighty works displayed for all to see
The beauty of Your majesty awakes my heart to sing
How marvelous how wonderful You are

You opened my eyes to Your wonders anew
You captured this heart with your love
'Cause nothing on earth is as beautiful as You

Build My Life
Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for You

Jesus the name above every other name
Jesus the only One who could ever save
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for You
We live for You

Holy there is no one like You
There is none besides You
Open up my eyes in wonder
And show me who You are and fill me with your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me

I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in You alone
And I will not be shaken
Context: After God appeared to Jacob in a dream and promised to bless him and his descendants, Jacob meets Laban and his daughters.

Nothing is too crooked
Discussion Questions:
1. How do we know that God was at work in this situation rather than these events being a series of coincidences?
