Tenth Avenue shares the story behind their new song "Afraid".
“When I was a kid I was scared of the dark. Then I grew up and I learned to be scared of a lot more things than just the dark. Now I’m scared for my health, scared of not being able to provide, scared of politics, terror, the list goes on and on. Fear is just the consequence of believing the lie.So why am I afraid? What lie am I listening to? Whose voice am I listening to? In other words fear is the result of believing that voice that I was hearing as a kid. This is where Psalm 62:11-12 is really helpful cause it says, ‘once you have spoken, two things I have heard. That You O Lord are strong and that You O Lord are loving.’ So next time fear washes over you why don’t you ask yourself which voice are you listening to? Me, I don’t want to be afraid so help me to listen.” – Mike Donehey (Tenth Avenue North)
