I love this song. Love it. I first heard it while on a missions trip this summer. Our team was gathered together for a time of prayer one evening and this song started playing. I remember hearing it and instantly loving it. It was fitting for that time because a missions trip is all about being brave. Especially when going to another country. You have to be brave as you're pushed out of your comfort zone. And ultimately, that's what I want. I don't want to stay the same. I want to grow and change. And then I found a video of how the song came to be. Hearing Amanda's heart makes me love the song all the more. Fear is a nasty guy. I'll admit that I let it hold me back sometimes. I think about the "what if" and decide it's safer to not venture away from the shore. And then I hear that line in my head, "You call me out beyond the shore into the waves." And then I try to be brave. I try to push the fear away and walk towards the waves. Am I always successful? Nope. But I'm trying! And this new year is a great chance to be a little more brave :)
