Courageous

Our family has been following with great interest each of the films that Sherwood Pictures have released since there very first one, “Flywheel”.

Fireproof has been a real favourite of our family because the principles displayed are ones that apply to everything in life – not just marriage. We have loaned or given a way 10 – 20 copies of Fireproof to different couples who were having marriage problems. But it comes back to – do we take the dare, to Love unconditionally.

I’m a bit of a sceptic and wasn’t sure if it was possible to not go down the line of comprise and bow to the pressures of the world and weaken the message of Christ in the story. I remember saying to Dad one evening, “Dad I hope they don’t give in but they keep a strong, spiritual story, with values based in the Bible”.

We have been following Courageous since it was first announced, and have been very pleased with what we’ve seen of the story. Being in Australia we won’t be able to see it until 2012 when it’s available on DVD.

A few weeks ago I watched the music video and trailer for Courageous. After watching it I said to Dad “They’ve done it again! Another movie that will challenge and inspire all who watch it.” I hope and pray that all who watch Courageous will be blessed, challenged, inspired, and put into practice the principles and values that are portrayed.

Below are the words for Courageous one of the songs on the movie.

Hope you enjoy and are blessed.

Courageous lyrics

We were made to be courageous
We were made to lead the way
We could be the generation
That finally breaks the chains
We were made to be courageous
We were made to be courageous

We were warriors on the front lines
Standing, unafraid
But now we’re watchers on the sidelines
While our families slip away

Where are you, men of courage?
You were made for so much more
Let the pounding of hearts cry
We will serve the Lord

We were made to be courageous
And we’re taking back the fight
We were made to be courageous
And it starts with us tonight

The only way we’ll ever stand
Is on our knees we’re lifting hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageous

This is our resolution
Our answer to the call
We will love our wives and children
We refuse to let them fall

We will reignite the passion
That we buried deep inside
May the watchers become warriors
Let the men of God arise

We were made to be courageous
And we’re taking back the fight
We were made to be courageous
And it starts with us tonight

The only way we’ll ever stand
Is on our knees, we’re lifting hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageous

Seek justice
Love mercy
Walk humbly
With your God

In the war of the mind
I will make my stand
In the battle of the heart
And the battle of the hand

In the war of the mind
I will make my stand
In the battle of the heart
And the battle of the hand

We were made to be courageous
And we’re taking back the fight
We were made to be courageous
And it starts with us tonight

The only way we’ll ever stand
Is on our knees, we’re lifting hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageous

We were made to be courageous
Lord, make us courageous

Lord please help me to be courageous for of you; to lead my brothers, sisters, friends and one day family to you; to do the right come what may. Please help me to surrender and walk humbly with you each day.
