Are You “Walking Through Fires” Right Now?

This song moves me to tears every time I listen to it. I heard it for the first time on the radio as I hopped into my minivan on Tuesday (Jan 26) morning to drive into work on the potentially icy roads. I’m still working through the fear about driving on ice and snow, so when I heard the words I perked up immediately. I was also wrestling with anxiety and imposter syndrome as the reality of starting my new role at work next week was sinking in. I drove about a quarter mile up the road and remembered I left my phone behind so I turned around and went home. While in my driveway I bought this song on iTunes and then listened to it on repeat all the way to work, crying the whole way.

The roads turned out to be fine *that* morning… but this song just really spoke to my heart about all the things, and the paralyzing fear and insecurity that I battle with. Whatever it is, God’s got it. He “walks with us through the fire and pulls us out of the flames”. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I will try to remember this daily and moment by moment- especially stepping out of my comfort zone and the same role I’ve had for a year, leaving behind the people I’ve spent nearly every week day with for the last two years. Tomorrow is my last day and it’s bittersweet, but I’m so thankful for the impact each of them has had on my life so far. I’m praying for peace, courage, and wisdom as I move into a different building and department while starting a new chapter in my career. I thought I’d share this song so others can be blessed by it. Honestly, “when words fail, music speaks”, as the saying goes…

Here’s the official lyric video…
