Farewell to fear

Ever wondered how you’re going to get through the day?

How does it feel when you do make it to the end of the day so you’ve survived, so relief, exhaustion?

You’ve survived today, so congratulations! It may have been a struggle, but you made it. Give thanks to God, because he still has plans for you. He reached out to you and through the stresses and strains that fell in your way. He helped you find a safe path through the day, so rest tonight and recharge your batteries, so you are ready to face tomorrow.

But be assured that no matter what tomorrow may bring, God will be with you. You survived today, and you can survive another day with God’s help.

They told me
I’d never get to tell my story
Too many bullet holes
It would take a miracle
These voices
Inside my head like poison
Trying to steal my hope
Silencing my soul

But my story is only now beginning
Don’t try to write my ending
Nobody gets to sing my song

This is the sound of surviving
This is my farewell to fear
This is my whole heart deciding
I’m still here, I’m still here
And I’m not done fighting
This is the sound of surviving

These pieces
The ones that left me bleeding
Intended for my pain
Became the gift you gave me
I gathered those pieces into a mountain
My freedom is in view
I’m stronger than I knew

And this hill is not the one I die on
I’m going to lift my eyes and
I’m going to keep on climbing

I’m still here
Say it to the ache, lying there awake
Say it to your tears
I'm still here
Say it to the pain, say it to the rain
Say it to your fear

This is the sound of surviving
This is my farewell to fear
This is my whole heart deciding
I’m still here, I’m still here
And I’m not done fighting
No, I'm not done fighting
And I am still rising
Rising, I'm still rising
And I'm not done fighting
This is the sound of surviving
