Yesterday morning, I listened to John Mayer’s Heart of Life. In one of the lines Mayer sings “fear is a misunderstood friend.” That concept, that perspective is something that really struck a chord with me. Fear can be so beautiful. It allows us an opportunity to plant our feet on the solid rock and stand our ground. To lift our voices above the storm. To show that faith and courage are victorious. It is fleeting, but gives us an chance to rise up when conflict and confusion intersect in our lives. That moment when everything aligns and culminates in fear, that is the perfect moment to praise glory be to our God. To stand behind His love that always wins and never fails. To feel small in the midst of our grander, mightier God. To know know our God is true and worth living for. Now this. This is our God.
