a pursuit | freedom | weaving my story

you are more…

January 25, 2011

I’ve probably listened to this song no less than 50 times in the last few weeks. Here’s the story, to me, it’s pretty amazing reminder of how awesome our God is:

I was on my way to an appointment. One I wasn’t too excited about going to. One where you pretty much have to bare yourself…counseling. I’ve probably heard this song on the radio tons in the last while, but this time I was driving and I broke out of my thoughts and really heard the words…

you are more than the choices that you make
you are more than the sum of your past mistakes…
you’ve been remade

anyway. I had the appointment and was just praying that I wouldn’t forget the words of this song so I could look it up later. Of course, I get in the car afterwards and cannot even recall the chorus (which repeats like a million times). I was SO frustrated! I thought, this is the perfect song to listen to as I am starting this journey of moving from the past into the glorious present and future that God has for me.

Not 2 seconds after I thought all these frustrating thoughts (and really horrible ones about myself…what good am I if I can’t even remember the chorus of a song just a few hours after I’ve heard it!!!!) and it came on the radio again. Like less than 2 hours after I had heard it the first time. It was the most thrilling thing and like the Lord was screaming these words into my heart:


But the man who loves God is known by God.
1 Corinthians 8:3
