"You are More" : thoughts from a friend and lyrics to a song

It is still Christmas  in my thinking  but I've moved my Christmas music down a bit in my play list. My #1 song right now is by  10th Avenue North and is called "You Are More". The lyrics are so powerful; my children and I have been blessed by them since the day I brought home the 10th Avenue North CD , which we play very  often! My friend Kim  posted  thoughts about the song today on her blog. Her words need no more comment from me. They are also the words of my heart. THANKS Kim for how you let God direct your words when you wrote !! I hope that each of you who stop by Smithsoup to visit will be ministered to by listening  to the whole song   while you read the words that follow.....

From Kim at  "His Hands, His Feet Today   " You Are More  
Every time I've turned on my radio, be it in the car or at home, this song has played for the last two weeks. It's been running through my head day and night.


"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. "
I think of, and am prompted to pray, for several people whenever I hear it. Adults and children. People who have been hurt. People who have believed lies. People who are searching. People who need to be remade. People who need to know that it's only when they surrender their lives to Jesus ... can that happen.


People He created.


People He loves.


The very people He died for.


There is so much more I want to say to the flip side of this, but for fear of offending my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ (because that's not my heart), I will not. But I will say, that being silent to an issue is not an answer. The Word says that once you know ... you- are- responsible.

Wow, the words You Are More Than The Problems You Create definitely help me remember I need to forgive people in my life.

That's a very powerful song that you posted! I may have to repost it too, because I'm so trying to live my life by thinking these things before acting or saying hurtful things.kin
