~Music Mondays~ Brave

Wow! Shawntele has a great song up today! Newsboys, "Something Beautiful"! Love it! Hope you stop by her blog, "Saved By Grace" to hear it and check out the others who joined Music Monday! I can't wait to see/hear what the others have picked for this week!

This week I wanted to share "Brave" by Nicole Nordeman. When I first heard this song I was breathless! It was like I could have written this! So close to my own hearts cry! Amazing. Praise the Lord, He gives us the strength to let go and to trust and to truly live! It is His love that sets us free and free we are in Him! "What can man do to us....?" Praise the Lord! God is sooo Good!
It is amazing how long we may hold onto some things, afraid to give them to God. It is like we can trust Him with some things, but others we think are just too big to hand over! Or maybe we think they are too small to bother Him with! LOL! How simple we can be at times! He is God! He can handle everything and what a load that takes off of us! We just have to be brave, to trust!
We have to be brave and not worry what others might think about us! We are no longer of the world, we are set apart, we are lights to shine and be a good example! We cannot compromise, meet half-way, or straddle the fence. We have to take a stand and remain standing! Praise the Lord, He gives us strength!
Okay, enough of me rattling! Here is the song!!!!!

"Brave" By Nicole Nordeman

Verse 1

"The gate is wide

The road is paved in moderation

The crowd is kind and quick to pull you in

Welcome to the middle ground

You're safe and sound and

Until now it's where I've been

'Cause it's been fear that ties me down to everything

But it's been love, Your love, that cuts the strings


So long status quo

I think I just let go

You make me want to be brave

The way it always was Is no longer good enough

You make me want to be brave

Brave, brave

Verse 2:

I am small

And I speak when I'm spoken to

But I am willing to risk it all

I say Your name

Just Your name and I'm ready to jump

Even ready to fall...

Why did I take this vow of compromise?

Why did I try to keep it all inside?(chorus)


I've never known a fire that didn't begin with a flame

Every storm will start with just a drop of rain

But if you believe in me

That changes everything

So long, I'm gone
