SO Much More

“We were meant to live for so much more!” ~Switchfoot

“Fumbling his confidence
And wond’ring why the world has passed him by
Hoping that he’s meant for more than arguments
And failed attempts to fly, fly

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

Dreaming about providence
And whether mice or men have second tries
Maybe we’ve been livin with our eyes half open
Maybe we’re bent and broken, broken

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than the wars of our fathers
And everything inside screams for second life

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live
We were meant to live”

~ Switchfoot, “Meant to Live“, The Beautiful Letdown

Of course we were meant to live for so much more! It’s the reason something in us cries out for more than what this world has to offer… And thank God, there IS more! More than this life, more than this world can ever offer! It started before the creation of the world, and was made available to us by Christ’s work on the cross, which we celebrate today–end every day. What an awesome provision!
