Are you crippled by the fear that dwells inside?
Do you step outside the box just to hide?
Have you forgotten the promise of the Lord on high?
The promise where He will never say goodbye?
Don’t be afraid, a daily reminder for you,
A reminder that you can be brave too.
He took the cross so you could be free,
He is slowly helping you, giving you bravery.
I know that sometimes it feels like He’s not there,
I know sometimes it feels like He doesn’t care.
But know that what I say is true,
Because He is looking out for you.
He’s fighting your corner and saving your life,
It kills Him inside when you’re hit by strife.
Don’t step out the door to be like everyone else, don’t be the same,
Because you have something different, remember His name.
God by your side through the thick and the thin,
Jesus giving his life so that you could win.
So stop sitting back, leaving it to the rest,
Stop thinking you can’t do it because you aren’t the best.
Read this, listen to me,
God is beside you, filling you with bravery.
Bravery is something today’s teens struggle with a lot. I know that I struggle to have the bravery to stand out and be different. I’m scared to stand and say what I believe. This means that I fight against things from behind my computer screen. I’m so scared of how people will see me that I can’t bear to stand there and be willing to be mocked. I still lack the bravery that I talk about. But no one is perfect. I know I’m not really brave but I do know that I can be with God by my side. Because He has a plan for every one and these plans can and probably will involve some form of bravery. Talking to strangers. Standing up for what you believe. Being different when everyone is the same. Bravery isn’t something that can be bought. It’s not something that you swap. It’s something you have to find, because no one can give you bravery, not true bravery anyway.
So start today, be brave and be different. Stand out when everyone else wants to stand in. Follow His plan for your life and do it with courage, because you are a strong man or woman. You can do this and you can storm ahead with bravery at your side and God at your head. Because you can do this. Because with God all things are possible…even bravery.
