Courageous


My husband and I saw Courageous last week.  It was phenomenal.  We didn’t bring a big enough stack of Kleenex.  It’s a movie every body should see.

Notice I said everybody, not just “all men”.  And there’s a reason for that.

Courageous is a movie about fathers for fathers about the role of the father and its dire importance.  There’s much a man can take away from this movie.

But what can the woman take from this movie besides the satisfaction of having seen a wonderfully emotionally charged movie?

Well, this is what I took away from it:

The role of the man as a father and husband is a formidable one.  It’s huge!

No wonder God made a helper for man.  That’s what God made women for.

Women, we need to be the helper in order for the man to fulfill his awesome role.

We have to be courageous too.

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 our 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 with lifted 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 with lifted 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 with lifted hands
Make us courageous
Lord, make us courageous

We were made to be courageous
Lord, make us courageous
