A Sunday Song – You Are More

You Are More ~ Tenth Ave North
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?
Yeah 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 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.

On this New Year’s day of resolutions, this Sunday song is a sweet reminder that we’ve been remade! I’ve added a new link to the 5 Star posts on the right hand side bar. Debby, who truly is livingingraceland, always reminds us that we are more than the choices that we’ve made. She offers a daily gift of grace to all! If you’re not already a regular reader of livingingraceland, I’d encourage you to begin your year with her beautiful post about Watchnight.

This video by Tenth Avenue North adds so much depth to the message.
May 2012 be a year where grace enfolds you with both comfort and with joy!

    1. Drusilla – Wow! We DO sing out of the same weird song book, don’t we? 😀 I liked the song before, but I loved it even more after watching the video.
      Happy New Year, dear Drusilla!
