A few years ago I was blessed with the opportunity to attend “The Rock and Worship Roadshow” in San Diego with my husband.  Tenth Avenue North was one of the bands that were playing that night.  Mike, the lead singer of this awesome band came up TWELVE rows of seats to sing this song to ME.  I sensed the overwhelming love of my heavenly Father in that moment.  And each time I hear this song, I am reminded that I am more than the choices I have made.  I am more than the sum of my past mistakes.  I have been remade.  I have made a ton of mistakes since the evening of that concert.  And I am blessed with the assurance that no matter how many times I blow it, my Savior Jesus Christ is quick to forgive and restore me.

You Are More — Tenth Avenue 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.

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.

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.

You’ve been remade
You’ve been remade.
You’ve been remade.
You’ve been remade. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
