Demolition Day 

  
Before each beginning


There must be an ending


The longer and the tighter that we hold


Only makes it harder to let go


Only when we’re broken, are we whole
The beauty in the breaking


Had to lose myself


To find out who You are

I love this song!  

How many times have we laid up those stones and built altars of things or people? 

We worshipped those and thought that they would define us and make us who we are.  

WRONG! 

This is demolition day-embrace the unmaking. 
Let God make you into His image and what He has envisioned for you. We don’t need to build altars, instead we lay it all down at His altar. There’s beauty in the breaking! Let God decide what goes and what stays.

The Unmaking – Nichole Nordeman

Lyrics:
This is where the walls gave way
This is demolition day
All the debris, and all this dust
What is left of what once was
Sorting through what goes and what should stay

Every stone I laid for You
As if You had asked me to
A monument to Holy things
Empty talk and circling
Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do

What happens now
When all I’ve made is torn down
What happens next
When all of You, is all that’s left

This is the unmaking
The beauty in the breaking
Had to lose myself
To find out who You are
Before each beginning
There must be an ending
Sitting in the rubble
I can see the stars
This is the unmaking

The longer and the tighter that we hold
Only makes it harder to let go
But love will not stay locked inside
A steeple or a tower high
Only when we’re broken, are we whole

What happens now
When all I’ve made is torn down

This is the unmaking
The beauty in the breaking
Had to lose myself
To find out who You are
Before each beginning
There must be an ending
Sitting in the rubble
I can see the stars
This is the unmaking
This is the unmaking

I’ll gather the same stones where
Everything came crashing down
I’ll build You an altar there
On the same ground

‘Cause what stood before
Was never Yours

This is the unmaking
The beauty in the breaking
Had to lose myself
To find out who You are
Before each beginning
There must be an ending
Sitting in the rubble
I can see the stars
This is the unmaking
This is the unmaking
Oh, this is the unmaking

Had to lose myself
To find out who You are
