Lyrics

You saw what You had made
Said it was good
The Crown of all creation
Made to look like heaven should
We were the perfect picture in Your frame
Then entered fear and shame to turn our colors into grey
Ooh, oh
Ooh, oh

In paradise left standing in our mess
We heard Your voice and ran to cover up our nakedness
We couldn’t clean it up, we tried our best
The accuser pointed fingers
Questioning our worthiness
Ooh, oh
But You don’t see me different, no
I am Your reflection

‘Cause You don’t make mistakes
And You didn’t start with me
Even though I’m far from where I know I’m supposed to be
You don’t make mistakes
And heaven would agree
That in Your eyes I’m everything that I was made to be
‘Cause You don’t make mistakes
No, You don’t mistakes

We look to every face to feel approved
We long for validation
That already came from You
You wrapped Yourself in skin to give us proof
Your love it never ended
You needed us to know the truth

Ooh, oh
But You don’t see me different, no
I am Your reflection

You don’t make mistakes
And You didn’t start with me
Even though I’m far from where I know
I’m supposed to be
You don’t make mistakes
And heaven would agree
That in Your eyes I’m everything that I was made to be
‘Cause You don’t make mistakes
No, You don’t mistakes

No, no I won’t waste another day
Believing words You didn’t say
No, I won’t waste another day
Believing words You didn’t say
No, I won’t waste another day
Believing words You didn’t say
No, I won’t waste another day
Believing words You didn’t say, no

‘Cause You don’t make mistakes
And You didn’t start with me
Even though I’m far from where I know I’m supposed to be
You don’t make mistakes
And heaven would agree
That in Your eyes I’m everything that I was made to be
‘Cause You don’t make mistakes
No, You don’t mistakes
No, You don’t mistakes
No, You don’t mistakes

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

I talk to so many people who struggle with their self value and wonder if God really does love them. Many can see how HE could love others, but have a hard time understanding how HE could love them. We all struggle with insecurities. I believe, however, if we knew how truly loved we are, it would cause the majority of fear, insecurities, anxiety and self-image issues to melt away. There would be almost nothing we couldn't accomplish according to His leading in our lives. We are all a work in progress and even though we are not where we need to be, He is faithful to complete the work He has started.

I believe we will not only fall in love with this song, but it will become an anthem reminding us that God knew what He was doing when He created us. It's unfortunate that our view of God is often colored by our relationship with our earthy fathers (parents). But, God is different than our earthly parents. He is perfect. He does NOT make mistakes and I'm so grateful we will have an opportunity to bury this truth deep within our hearts.
