I have some tender hearts written on a card and stuck in my Bible. I’m praying. I love them so. I know they are scared, one even told me so. This little card represents all kinds of life’s hardships – dealing with pain and loss, uncertainty, and wanting to hope but being too scared.

Sometimes a song helps. I know and remember that fear takes hold with a death grip, especially in the middle of the night and often when we least expect it. Francesca Battistelli has captured attitude in her beat and lyrics.

Have you ever thought of breaking up with fear? Singing along with her (what she recommends in her song) is helping me pray for them and fight for them. As their proxy I’m kicking fear to the curb.

This song on repeat –
