Am I ... ?

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Every so often we are hoping to stop in with something that perhaps has been weighing on our hearts.  Something that someone said that stuck with us, a song that we've heard that we couldn't get out of our heads, a passage of scripture that was particularly applicable, etc.  Sometimes something serious, and other times just for fun.  Well, I am kicking it off.  I have heard this song from Mike's Chair on the radio for the past couple of months.  Every time I hear it, it propels me into moments of thoughtfulness and reflection on my own life.  Here's the video::

It is the chorus that gets me.  'Am I more than flesh and bone?  Am I really something beautiful?'  I think it is these two questions that get me thinking, for I find them particularly complex to answer.  Over the last few months, I have found myself running around being a working wife and mom.  And sometimes I kick butt at doing so.  Other times, this world does the butt kicking for me.   Often when moments of defeat arise I think I could answer, "Nope, not a chance I am anything more than flesh and bone and if you saw what I saw looking back at me in the mirror, it certainly isn't beautiful."  I think that is why this chorus pulls at my heart strings, for it follows up these questions with 'I'm not just some wandering soul that you don't see and you don't know.'  That is really what matters.  God knows me.  Amazing.  It's the reminder that no matter how red my fanny gets from the world around me, I am more because Christ is the most.  I am beautiful because I am made in the image of Christ and he is the most beautiful.

Just something that has been on my heart.  Probably not even the real purpose behind this song, but is what those few chorus lines have meant to me.  Anyone else out there have a song that has been impacting them lately?
