On the interstate yesterday, we passed this car several times and I just had to have my friend take a picture of this license plate.  It said “URMORE”.

It reminded me of Tenth Avenue North song with the same title.

A lot of times we define ourselves by the mistakes we’ve made or even the successes we have in our lives.  We may continue to tell ourselves:
“I’m not worthy because I did” ….
“I’m no good to anyone because someone did [such and such] to me.”
“No one will ever love me because…….”
“I’ve messed up too many times to………”

Or we go to the other extreme out of fear.
“I’ve worked to hard to get to the top and ain’t nobody gonna tell me what to do.”
“Look at all that I have.  I’m not going to share it with anyone.”
“I’m better than the person………..”

Jesus tells us that we are more than any of that.

A few of the words in Tenth Avenue North’s song 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 problems you create.
You’ve been remade.

I say to you that you are more than your past hurts, mistakes or failures.  You are more than your future accomplishments.  You are more than who the devil says you are.  You are more than that habit that keeps plaguing you.

You are a child of The King (and I’m not talking about Elvis here.  🙂 )  You are created by God to be YOU, uniquely YOU and He wants you to follow Him.  Don’t follow the lies the devil or the world tells you.  You are more than any habit, any sin, anything in this world.  You are a child of the One who created it all; who knows all; who sees all; who leads all.
