You Are More




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 new.

The song is You Are More by Tenth Avenue North.  It came on the radio this morning while I was cleaning.  And all of a sudden I found myself sobbing on the floor.  Satan loves to remind me of where I've been.  Of every little failure.  He tries to pin every little thing in my life back to how I'm less than what I should be.  And today, my Jesus reminded me so clearly that I am way more than those lies.  That my weakness shows His strength.  That my brokenness leads me to love Him and have compassion for others.  I am so much more than my choices, mistakes, and problems.  I am his lovely daughter in whom He delights.

Friend--you are more too. Let Him remind you.
