So, it’s amazing how sometimes the Lord goes before us and we write songs that we don’t know what they will mean to us or how they will minister to us later down the road. My son, Samuel was born with a large hole in his heart which we didn’t know until he was 2 days old, so we went to the cardiologist who said, “Your son has a large hole in his heart and it will not close on its own without surgery,” and of course we sobbed. And then every month we would go to the Dr. for weigh ins, because it’s hard for them to eat and they use up so many calories and his weight dropped to 3 percentile, so it was time for the surgery.

We did our research and we went to CHOP in Philadelphia for the surgery. And It went so successfully, and Samuel is doing great and he has no restrictions and we only need to go for yearly check-ups and we are so thankful. But I can still feel the feeling, the anxiety, the overwhelming feeling, driving 14 hours to Philadelphia where I am actually from, and I had this song, You Make Me Brave on repeat in my earbuds. And I was saying, “I have to be brave, I have to be brave,” but I knew the only person that could make me brave was the Lord. 

And now Kelly and I look back at this, and it’s strange, but we remember it almost fondly because God was so present and so tangible through the entire hospital stay, we felt His presence go before us. He made us brave! Who knows the circumstances that I was writing about when I wrote this song, I am sure they were nothing compared to this.  So, this song, You Make Me Brave has a whole new meaning for me now.

And recently, through all the tragic trials in this country with the hurricanes, I was so moved by what I saw and the bravery of the first responders and the people affected by the hurricanes, and how they rescued and helped each other that we asked our friend Bob Marshall to make a lyric video to dedicate this song to them and to all the people in our country that were so brave.  

Just like He did for us, God carried them through this and He made them brave.

Joshua 1:9 (NIV)

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

You are greater than this circumstance
You are stronger than what’s pressing in on me
You are healer, only You restore
You are bigger, I can trust You Lord

You are my help, when I am weak
You hear my cry, You rescue me
You are a warrior, strong to save
A shield all around me,
You make me brave

At the foot of this mountain, I feel so small
I raise my hands and surrender it all
I need You like the air I breathe
Every Word, every promise I believe

You are my help, when I am weak
You hear my cry, You rescue me
You are a warrior, strong to save
A shield all around me
You make me brave

You are greater, You are stronger, You are healer, You are bigger, You are Holy
You are warrior, You are helper, You are mercy, You are good, You are Holy
You are greater, You are stronger, You are healer, You are bigger, You are Holy

You are my help, when I am weak
You hear my cry, You rescue me
You are a warrior, strong to save
A shield all around me

You make me brave
