The rest of your life is going to be spent getting back up after life has knocked you down again. You might as well just get used to it.

On Courage

Have you ever heard a song that hit you right in the gut? Left you short of breath? Hit WAY too close to home? Well, Casting Crowns, one of the best new Christian bands out there, has a song like that for me. If you don't have the album, I suggest you go out and get it. But, for now, I'll just print the lyrics to their song, The Voice of Truth. You tell me if it doesn't hit too close to home.

The Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns

Oh What I Would Do To Have
The Kind Of Faith It Takes
To CLimb Out Of This Boat
And Then
On To The Crashing Wave
To Step Out Of My Comfort Zone
Into The Rhelms Of The Unknown
Where Jesus Is
And He's holding out his hand

But The Waves Are Calling Out My Name
And They Laugh At Me
Reminding Me Of All The Times
Ive Tried Before and Failed
The Waves They keep On Telling me
Time and Time Again
Boy You'll Never
No You'll Never Win

But The Voice Of Truth
Tells Me A Different Story
The Voice Of Truth
Says Do Not Be Afraid
And The Voice of Truth
Says This Is For My Glory
Out Of All The Voices Calling out To Me
I will Choose To Listen and Believe
The Voice Of Truth

Oh What I Would Do To Have
The Kind Of Strength It Takes To Stand Before
A Giant
With Just A Sling And A Stone
Surrounded By The Sound
Of A Thousand Warriors
Shaking In Their Armor
Wishing They Had Had The Strength To Stand
But The Giant's Calling out My Name
And He Laughs At Me
Reminding Me Of All the Times
I've tried Before and Failed
The Giant Keeps on Telling Me

Time and Time Again
Boy You'll Never Win
You'll Never Win

But The Voice Of Truth
Tells Me A Different Story
The Voice Of Truth
Says Do Not Be Afraid
And The Voice of Truth
Says This Is For My Glory
Out Of All The Voices Calling out To Me
I will Choose To Listen and Believe
The Voice Of Truth

The Stone Was Just The Right Size
To Put The Giant On The Ground
And The Waves They Dont Seem So high
On Top Of Them Looking Down
I'll Soar With The Wings Of Eagles
When I Stop And Hear The Voice Of Jesus
Singing It Over Me

The Voice Of Truth
Tells Me A Different Story
The Voice Of Truth
Says Do Not Be Afraid
And The Voice of Truth
Says This Is For My Glory
Out Of All The Voices Calling out To Me
I will Choose To Listen and Believe
I will Choose To Listen and Believe
The Voice Of Truth

I Will Listen And Believe
I Will Listen And Believe
The Voice Of Truth
I Will Listen And Believe
Cause Jesus You Are The Voice Of Truth
And I Will Listen To You
You Are
