What am I?

Liking this song lately:



Lyrics

NOW I WON’T DENY THE WORST YOU COULD SAY ABOUT ME
BUT I’M NOT DEFINED BY MISTAKES THAT I’VE MADE BECAUSE GOD SAYS OF ME

I AM NOT WHO I WAS, I AM BEING REMADE, I AM NEW
I AM CHOSEN AND HOLY AND I’M DEARLY LOVED, I AM NEW, I AM NEW
WHO I THOUGHT I WAS AND WHO I THOUGHT I HAD TO BE

I HAD TO GIVE THEM BOTH UP CAUSE NEITHER WERE WILLING TO EVER BELIEVE
TOO LONG I HAVE LIVED IN THE SHADOWS OF SHAME
BELIEVING THAT THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD CHANGE

BUT THE ONE WHO IS MAKING EVERYTHING NEW DOESN’T SEE ME THE WAY THAT I DO
HE DOESN’T SEE ME THE WAY THAT I DO

I AM NOT WHO I WAS, I AM BEING REMADE, I AM NEW
DEAD TO THE OLD MAN, I’M COMING ALIVE, I AM NEW, I AM NEW
FORGIVEN BELOVED, HIDDEN IN CHRIST

MADE IN THE IMAGE OF THE GIVER OF LIFE
RIGHTEOUS AND HOLY, REBORN AND REMADE
ACCEPTED AND WORTHY, THIS IS OUR NEW NAME
THIS IS WHO WE ARE NOW
Songwriter: Jason Gray, Joel Hanson

I love that song. It came out in 2009 but seems to just be catching on. My children are good friends with Jason Gray and his family. They are really neat, down-to-earth people.

I just logged onto my abandoned-blog to comments from only you...and my heart broke because I was such a terrible friend. I did not communicate what was going on with me to you and I am sorry.

I think the song pretty much sums up how I am feeling. Again!

Trying to come up for air after a life in the shadows. Nothing horrible, just yucky complacency---spit you out of my mouth--

I am new...

Call me if you like so we can catch up!

It's one of my favorites! How wonderful that He makes all things new, beginning with me.

Blessings,
