So of course when I think about being brave I think about singing…
I really do like singing in church, it’s just that my Bec paraphrased version keeps interrupting.
Like the song Brave.
It goes like this…. (you have to sing this in your head)
You make me brave… enough to sing along to this song with a room full of other believers
You make me brave… so that I can be bold enough to tick Christian on my hospital admission form
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves… as long as the waves don’t wet my hair
You make me brave… like that time when I alluded to the fact that I attend Church to my workmate when she asked what are you doing this weekend
You make me brave… apart from every time I have feelings I don’t like and I decide that chocolate is the comfort I need rather than you no offense
No fear can hinder now the love that made a way… apart from maybe my fear of following you without reservation or boundaries because I’m not sure what you might ask me to do if I let you get to close to me, sorry about that, but anyway it’s nice to get close to you in the confines of the Church building once a week, or sometimes once a fortnight because I like to sleep in sometimes.
You make me brave… enough to buy socially responsible water rather than drink out of the tap You make me brave… with your inspiring Instagram posts
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves… so I can feel your love wash over me (wait… are those people drowning? awkward… )
You make me brave... because you give me armour for that spiritual battle I’m engaged in… wait… what? You make me brave… so I can face the day I have planned for myself No fear can hinder now the promises you made… I’m glad we are talking about the promises YOU made, cos I aint making any promises.
You make me brave… is this song repetitive?
You make me brave… enough to accept your blessing #blessed #cheersGod I’m so awesome You call me out beyond the shore into the waves… do you?
You make me brave…but in reality I’m piss weak You make me brave… enough to reach out despite my weakness and ask your forgiveness No fear can hinder now the promises you made… to love me despite my weakness,
