There's a girl in the corner
With tearstains 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 has 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 feelin'
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 build
But what He built to forgive you
And what He built to make you know

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

    Every time i hear this it reminds me that god loves me and my sins are paid for i can let go of the guilt and regret, because he loves me and no matter what will never stop. I have been forgiven and as long as i follow him, no matter what i do, if i ask he will remake me! So, whenever something goes wrong in my life i listen to this song and it gives me hope. This is by far my favorite song!

    "this is not about where you've been, but where your brokenness brings you to. " that line is so powerful. It never has been about what we haven't forgiven ourselves or others for, or where we have fallen. It's about looking to the cross and knowing that we are, and always will be his, and that we can rest in that.

    Sooo inspiring and true! It gives back what the world takes (or what we freely give in ignorance). It meant a lot to me and will mean a lot to many others!!

    The first time i heard it and well almost every time still, it makes me cry. I have done alot of things i am not proud of and i dwell on them daily. God loves me, my sin is gone so why do i hold onto it when its gone? I am more than the problems i create. I am more than the choices that i make cause god loves me and i am made new. I love that and it reminds me that i am loved unconditionally.
