Token



Happy June y’all! I released my third single, Token, this past Friday. I wanted to take a moment to share the story behind the song.


Last year, my son was playing in one of his soccer games. It was a tight game and so he didn’t get a lot of playing time. I was texting someone and said Stone is a token on the field today. Afterwards, something sparked in me. What I said was a negative spoken word and it just wasn’t true.

Below are the lyrics that was inspired by this moment at my son’s soccer game. I hope you enjoy the words behind this song:

Verse 1

The world may say you are a token,

The world may say you look broken,

The world may say you are no keepsake,

But, make no mistake, make no mistake

You are more than, more than a token,

For God said you will never be broken,

He created you, more than

You’re more than a token, you're more than a token

Pre-chorus 1

You may experience brokenness,

But, you will never be broken,

For He that is within you is more than,

Is more than

Chorus 1

I’m not your token and I’ll never be broken

Just you wait and see, wait and see

Verse 2

So, when you feel down and done,

And you're overwhelmed and want to run,

Know you were created for more than,

You’re more than a token, you’re more than a token

So, when you feel like you’re not enough,

And just want to give up

God said you are My child and you'll never be broken

For I marked you, marked you, marked you

Chorus 1

I’m not your token and I’ll never be broken

Just you wait and see, wait and see

Chorus 2

You will forever be a Child of the King x5

A child of the King

Bridge

Yes, the brokenness is the beautiful thing inside of me, yeah

Yes, the brokenness is the beautiful thing breaking out of me

Yes, the brokenness is the beautiful thing pouring out of me

Just you wait and see, wait and see, wait and see

Outro

I’m not your token and I’ll never be broken

Just you wait and see, wait and see x3

This song is a song of declaration.

YOU ARE ….

More than

Not broken

His creation

Enough

Marked

⭐️YOU WILL FOREVER BE A CHILD OF THE KING.⭐️

The enemy on the other hand is the one who whispers the opposite.

YOU ARE….

Broken

A mistake

Not enough

Not pretty enough

Not smart enough

Not driven enough

Not talented enough

Not marriage material

A burden

Lonely

Hopeless

I’m sorry if you have ever believed any of these lies about yourself. Most of the time, they were spoken over you by someone in authority over you. A teacher, a parent, a relative, a coach, a peer, or even a friend. Words affect our inner being, period. For, the spirit within was designed to be spoken to with loving kindness at all times. The soil of a child’s heart is first given to a parent to cultivate with God’s guidance. As I have talked to many people, childhood has been a place of much wounding. It grieves my heart to know children experience so much heartache at an early age of innocence. I feel a fight inside myself to advocate for the less fortunate and to bring awareness to the tactics of the enemy. We are our own worst enemy so much of the time as well. Sometimes, nobody has spoken over us negatively; it’s actually ourselves. Our words are either speaking life or death.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.”

Proverbs 18:21 NKJV

“Words of wisdom are like a fresh, flowing brook— like deep waters that spring forth from within, bubbling up inside the one with understanding.”

Proverbs 18:4 TPT

I love that last line, those who love it will eat its fruit. Our words are like fruit. Do we want them to be ripe or rotten? Words can be nourishing. Have you ever had anyone tell you your words were so refreshing? A fresh flowing brook bubbling up with understanding. I love that so much. It gives such a good word picture.

Well, I have said enough about this topic for today. I will be exploring a few good men on my blogs this month. I hope you will tune in next week for the latest addition of Monday’s with Micah.

It’s been a joy to explore the more that continues to find me around the corner.

Until next time,

Stay tender.
