You ARE More (Whether You Agree or Not!)

As Americans we are exposed to hundreds (maybe even thousands) of advertisements each day.  But do you remember them?  Do you remember L’Oréal’s?  Let me refresh your memory…“because you’re worth it.”  Ring a bell?  In the mid 2000’s they used that ad slogan to increase consumers loyalty to the brand and product satisfaction.

But think about it–are you worth it just because you wear L’Oréal make-up?  Doubtful.  For that matter, are you going to believe that “you’re worth it” because a company with the only goal of selling it products to consumers tells you that you are?  Again, doubtful.  You are worth it because of one person alone, Jesus Christ.  Do you realize that He died on the cross to save you from your sins?  He alone is the only one that has/can make you worth it, because you ARE.  Even if you don’t feel worth it you are, because of Him.

I am going to share with you a song by Tenth Avenue North (which has been stuck in my head for days now).  Although I have been listening to this song for months, it just recently spoke to me.  I am so glad that I found this song because even on the days when I don’t feel worth it, it reassures me that I am…because of Him.  I highly recommend that you watch the music video on YouTube–especially the end (it gave me goose-bumps!).  Here are the lyrics for you; I have bolded the parts that really spoke to me, enjoy!

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.
