you are more

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 has 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. so she'll try to do better but then she's too weak to try. 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.

i feel like this could be talking about me personally sometimes. and my struggle to remember that i am more than the choices i've made, the sum of my past mistakes and the problems i create. that i've been remade. to live in that rebirth, not wallowing in the past. not about the process so much but the result. not where i've been but where it brings me to. and Him.
