MORE

28 Jul

So I have successfully not blogged while I was supposed to be studying lately. Which is why I haven’t blogged in a while I guess. Haha

I heard this song recently, and it says everything I want to say right now. So Im just going to write the lyrics as a story and let you read for yourselves.

 

 

There’s a girl in the corner with tear stains on her eyes from the places she’s wandered and the shame she can’t hide. She says, “How did I get here? I’m not who I once was, and I’m crippled by the fear that I’ve fallen too far to love.”
 
 

 


But don’t you know who you are, what’s been done for you? Don’t you know who you are?
 
 

 


You are more than the choices that you’ve made. You are more than the sum of your past mistakes. You are more than the problems you create. You’ve been remade.
 
 

 


Well she tries to believe it, that she’s been given new life, but she can’t shake the feeling that it’s not true tonight. She knows all the answers and she’s rehearsed all the lines, and so she’ll try to do better, but then she’s too weak to try.
 
 

 


But don’t you know who you are?
 
 

 


You are more than the choices that you’ve made. You are more than the sum of your past mistakes. You are more than the problems you create. You’ve been remade.
 
 

 


‘Cause this is not about what you’ve done, but what’s been done for you. This is not about where you’ve been, but where your brokenness brings you to. This is not about what you feel, but what He felt to forgive you, and what He felt to make you loved.
You’ve been remade.
 

(“You Are More” – 10th Ave N.)

 

Sometimes I forget who I am.

Sometimes I get caught up in thinking that it IS all about the things that I have done, where Ive been, and what I feel. But its not about any of that. Its not about me.

My brokenness brings me here. To His forgiveness and love. Where it all began. Life is waiting.
