Am I more than flesh and bone?

You might be the wife, waiting up at night
You might be the man, struggling to provide
Feeling like it’s hopeless
Maybe you’re the son, who chose a broken road
Maybe you’re the girl, thinking you’ll end up alone
Praying God can you hear me?
Oh God are you listening?

Am I more than flesh and bone?
Am I really something beautiful?
Yeah I wanna believe, I wanna believe that
I’m not just some wandering soul
That you don’t see and you don’t know
Yeah I wanna believe, Jesus help me believe that I
Am someone worth dying for

I know you’ve heard the truth that God has set you free
But you think you’re the one that grace could never reach
So you just keep asking, oh what everybody’s asking

Am I more than flesh and bone?
Am I really something beautiful?
Yeah I wanna believe, I wanna believe that
I’m not just some wandering soul
That you don’t see and you don’t know
Yeah I wanna believe, Jesus help me believe that I
Am someone worth dying for

You’re worth it, you can’t earn it
yeah the cross has proven
That you’re sacred and blameless
Your life has purpose

And you are more than flesh and bone
Can’t you see you’re something beautiful
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe
He wants you to see, He wants you to see
That you’re not just some wandering soul
That can’t be seen and can’t be known
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe that you
Are someone worth dying for

What strong words and deep meaning lies between each.  For myself, I’m waiting upon a huge change of my life.  Everything is changing here and there (for the better) but its not always so comfortable or feels right.  Every time I hear this song on the radio (MikesChair), it makes me stop and think how great of a God and Creator we have.  How much we have to be thankful for and give back to Him for His purpose.  That’s the reason- His purpose for us….it’s not to just be “flesh and bone”….but we really are beautiful to God, after all He created us within every cell, every nerve and muscle, every heart beat, and every breath of life.  He created us beautifully so that He may be glorified by us.  We are NOT just wandering around with no purpose and no life.  But instead God DOES see us and He DOES know us.  He desires that we believe that with our hearts and lives and therefore live that out.
