Braver Than You Think You Are

Hi!
Thanks for reading my REAP articles.
I’m currently on holidays at the moment so thought I would do something slightly different.
I have found a number of songs have been really helpful to me over the last year for various reasons.  I would like to honour the artists by sharing their song with you.

Braver Than You Think You Are – Tanya Gordon

As part of an EP released in January 2007 I heard this song on the radio in the car.  At the time I was going through a particularly difficult season in my ministry and was struggling to see God’s purpose for my life.  The words of this song seemed to speak straight to my heart.

It seems that Tanya Gordon was able to express her own struggles through this song and therefore connect with other people in similar situations.  What a great reminder that God has all things in His loving, caring, powerful hands.

You don’t see round corners
But I do
You don’t know if there are miracles
But there’s one waiting for you

Everything seems backwards
And outside in
And everything that once was isn’t anymore
Where do you begin

If you can’t see Me
Don’t worry I see you
If you can’t hear Me
Don’t worry I hear you

So go on now
Go one now

Lift up your eyes to the skies
That’s where you belong
Today is redemption day
Old is new again

And all you fear is weightless
Nor voice or form
All you dream is hanging
On an open door

(Hold on)
If you can’t see Me
(Hold on)
Don’t worry I see you
(Hold on)
If you can’t hear Me
(Hold on)
Don’t worry I hear you

So go on now
Don’t be afraid
God one now
The path is laid
Go on now
You’re braver than you think you are

When the way is dark
You’re braver than you think you are
When the way is dark
You’re braver than you think you are
When the way is dark
You’re braver than you think you are
So much braver than you think you are
