Fave Idina Lyrics

Secular songs can carry profound  Spiritual truths.

I am a * huge* fan of Ms Menzel & her music.  About two years ago this song  came out & it really ” spoke” to me as few songs have done in my lifetime. At the time that I bought this CD, I was in a very emotionally, physically & { most-importantly} spiritually  bad state..  I was severely underweight, emotionally depleted & spiritually seeking something more than what I’d known in my life.  It was at this time that I found The Episcopal Church…or should I say the Church found me?

 God does work in ways which we humans cannot ever  understand. While I am not always happy{ no one ever is…& if they tell ya that RUN the other way…} but I do feel joy. But I did not find this joy until I finally  moved away from my comfort zone & the dysfunction associated with that situation.

These lyrics…ALL OF THEM…are ripe with special meaning for me But it is the following that can, under certain circumstances, bring me to tears:

“If this is the moment I stand here on my own
If this is my rite of passage that somehow leads me home
I might be afraid
But it’s my turn to be brave”

Now, as I prayerfully seek  what God might have in store for me next, I’ll remember these words.

Here is the song in its entirety………

“Brave”

By: Idina Mezel

Don’t know just where I’m going
And tomorrow, it’s a little overwhelming
And the air is cold
And I’m not the same anymore
I’ve been running in your direction
For too long now
I’ve lost my own reflection
And I can’t look down
If you’re not there to catch me when I fall.

If this is the moment I stand here on my own
If this is my rite of passage that somehow leads me home
I might be afraid
But it’s my turn to be brave
If this is the last chance before we say goodbye
At least it’s the first day of the rest of my life
I can’t be afraid
Cause it’s my turn to be brave

All along all I ever wanted, was to be the light
When your life was daunting
But I can’t see mine
When I feel as though you’re pushing me away
Well who’s to blame, are we making the right choices
Cause we can’t be sure if we’re hearing our own voices
As we close the door even though we are so desperate to stay

If this is the moment I stand here on my own
If this is my rite of passage that somehow leads me home
I might be afraid
But it’s my turn to be brave
If this is the last chance before we say goodbye
At least it’s the first day of the rest of my life
I can’t be afraid
Cause it’s my turn to be brave

And I might still cry
And I might still bleed
These thorns in my side
This heart on my sleeve
And lightning may strike
This ground at my feet
And I might still crash
But I still believe

This is the moment I stand here all alone
With everything I have inside, everything I own
I might be afraid
But it’s my turn to be brave
If this is the last time before we say goodbye
At least it’s the first day of the rest of my life
I can’t be afraid
Cause it’s my turn to be brave
