“Strength, Courage & Wisdom” – Encouragement for Those Facing a New Adventure In Their Lives

It has been 12 days since my last post and I am so sorry for the delay.  I owe everyone a big update in the Oh My HA! section of B.E.A but until then I hope these lyrics speak to you in the same way that they have spoken to me this morning.  I italicized the lyrics I especially connected with.  Not to make a cliche of my own words but… you can find God and worship through so much more than basic “Christian” music and art.  Our God can use anything to bless our day.

This song may be especially well-timed for the friends and strangers who , like myself, have made big moves and changes in their world.  I pray for strength, courage & wisdom for each of you.  Your willingness to go wherever God has called you speaks to your bravery and faithfulness.  The Lord sees that and he is with you during those inevitable moments of fear and questioning.  Cherish each minute of your new adventures!

“Strength, Courage & Wisdom”

Inside my head there lives a dream that I want to see in the sun
Behind my eyes there lives a me that I’ve been hiding for much too long
‘Cause I’ve been, too afraid to let it show
‘Cause I’m scared of the judgment that may follow
Always putting off my living for tomorrow
It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my face
It’s been elusive for so long, but freedom is mine today
I’ve gotta step out on faith, It’s time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

[Chorus:]
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it’s been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me

Behind my pride there lives a me, that knows humility
Inside my voice there is a soul, and in my soul there is a voice
But I’ve been, too afraid to make a choice
‘Cause I’m scared of the things that I might be missing
Running too fast to stop and listen

It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my face
It’s been elusive for so long but freedom is mine today
I’ve gotta step out on faith it’s time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I close my eyes and I think of all the things that I want to see
‘Cause I know, now that I’ve opened up my heart I know that
Anything I want can be, so let it be, so let it be:.

Strength, courage, and wisdom
It’s been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, wisdom
It’s been inside of me all along, everyday I’m praying for:

[Chorus]

Vamp
I found it in me, I found it finally
I’m sure to keep it’ cause I like it, I say thank you

-India Arie
