05. Choose To Love

If We're Honest
by Francesca Battistelli



 

I locked up my heart / And I put on a show / I let the busyness of life be a wall so nobody gets close // Well I got a lot done / Yeah, Iím so type A / But Iím finding armís length is a safe but lonely place // CHORUS: So Iím gonna choose to reach out / Choose to lay down /All of the fear that Iíve been hiding / Choose to be brave / Though my heartís afraid / To be a part of Your Kingdom rising, oh / God, Iím done running from / The reason that You sent Your Son / So I will choose to love // Well itís always a risk / And itís always a dare / But itís a far more dangerous thing to listen to fear // But itís a beautiful thing / To know and be known / Yeah, thereís a whole lot of life outside of my comfort zone // CHORUS // Iíll choose to trust / Oh God, let my heart be tender in a world so tough / Iím gonna choose to love // CHORUS: Iím gonna choose to reach out / Choose to lay down / All of the fear that Iíve been hiding / Choose to be brave / Though my heartís afraid / To be a part of Your Kingdom rising, oh / God, Iím done running from / The reason that You sent Your Son / So Iím gonna choose to love / Maybe Iíll hurt, maybe Iíll bruise / Maybe Iíll cry, maybe Iíll lose / Still I will choose to love

(Francesca Battistelli / Justin Ebach / Tony Wood)

Behind the Song:
This song is my life. It can be so easy to hide from people. People can hurt us more than almost anything else, and being in community with humans is a risk. But itís a risk God has called us to take. As a natural introvert, I tend to want to avoid getting close with people, so I have to make a conscious choice to invest into friendships and relationships and not be afraid of whatís real. So this song is my challenge to myselfÖand hopefully to you too! - Francesca Battistelli
