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.

We all have our own stories of turmoil and distress where we’ve failed and failed over and over again. I’ve been through it too. It’s so difficult even with God. But all I know is it was way easier with Him there than without. This song. This song is truth. Mike Donehey, the lead singer of this band, said in a video. If we’re good we’re more than our successes and if we’re bad we’re more than our failures. You know why? This is why. We are the sum of God’s love for us. Everything else that we’ve done doesnt matter. It’s what Christ did for us that makes us who we are. We aren’t sinners that are saved. We are Saints that sin. We aren’t struggling to be free. We are free to struggle. Thank you God. For loving us. Despite all the pain we caused you.
1 John 4:10-
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
You my friend are loved. Dont ever forget that.
