Lighter


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. ~ Tenth Avenue North

This song just really spoke to me today... this VERSE in the song really spoke to me today. It just rang a chord in my heart and I'm not exactly sure why. I don't think it's about me though... or is it? 

I've made mistakes and I know that I am more. I know that I've been remade. I rest secure in my love for my God and his love for me. 

But...... I tend to forget that when thinking about other people. I think this song for me today was more than talking about me, it is a reminder to me that EVERYONE is more than the choices they make, more than their past mistakes, and more than the problems that they create. This is a song of forgiveness and of rebirth and although I didn't think I was holding on to any un-forgiveness, maybe I was.

And I know feel very overwhelmed and so much LIGHTER than I did a few moments ago. Does that even make sense to you?
