Sometimes there are things in life that find you. I have to say I’ve never before experienced so much confirmation of one of my “Words” for the year than I have this January. From a little gifted book, to online encouragement, to a side comment on instagram naming a song that spoke to another artist — this song, “You Make Me Brave” I had to look it up. She was listening to a version by Amanda Cook, but I prefer the more acoustic version by Sarah Reeves. You have to listen to the whole thing …
I can’t say I’ve ever had a theme song for my “Word” before … but … there’s a first for everything!
It’s SO perfect!! I tried to embed it here but have not been at all successful.
You Make Me Brave, by Sarah Reeves
I love her voice. I love the piano. I love the tune. Today, this is so moving to me.
Here are the lyrics:
"You Make Me Brave"I stand before You nowThe greatness of your renownI have heard of the majesty and wonder of youKing of Heaven, in humility, I bowAs Your love, in wave after waveCrashes over me, crashes over meFor You are for usYou are not against usChampion of HeavenYou made a way for all to enter inI have heard You calling my nameI have heard the song of love that You singSo I will let You draw me out beyond the shoreInto Your graceYour graceYou make me braveYou make me braveYou call me out beyond the shore into the wavesYou make me braveYou make me braveNo fear can hinder now the love that made a wayYou make me braveYou make me braveYou call me out beyond the shore into the wavesYou make me braveYou make me braveNo fear can hinder now the promises you madeYou make me braveYou make me braveNo fear can hinder now the love that made a way
