"You Make Me Brave"

How do we face the #DangerDays- those times when life is overwhelming or new adventures await us? We do it by remembering that we are never alone. That God is always with us. That sometimes we find out greatest joys not in the calm waters of a placid lake, but in the crashing waves of the ocean. I love that God sometimes protects us from the waves, but more often calls us to dive into them. We turn in fear when we should be yelling SURF'S UP! Scripture reminds us  that courage is not the lack of fear, it is the willingness to go on with life in spite of our trepidations. And that kind of courage only has ONE source. The love of God whose name is Jesus is what makes us brave. Enjoy my favorite new worship song, and then read the lyrics and let them wash over you- just like the waves. Be encouraged, uplifted and bold today as you face this often harsh world. "Fear no evil, for God is with you!" ~ Psalm 23

I stand before You now
The greatness of Your renown
I've heard of the majesty and wonder of You
King of Heaven, in humility, I bow

As Your love, in wave after wave
Crashes over me, crashes over me
For You are for us, You are not against us
Champion of Heaven, 
You made a way for all to enter in

I've heard You calling my name
I've heard the song of love that You sing
So I will let you draw me out beyond the shore 
Into Your grace

You make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves

You make me brave
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the Love that made a way

You make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves
