We tend to confuse bravery with lack of fear. Wrong! Bravery is when we act DESPITE our fear. We’re all afraid of something, and that’s actually a good thing! Fear can keep you from danger, and fear can straighten out your life when it’s headed in the wrong direction. There’s an ancient teaching that says the purpose of thunder is to wake us from our slumber. It’s a way of saying when fear leads to action, it’s a good fear.

Lyrics

The Thunder

One day if you’re shaken, you’ll begin to see
When you’re reminded that you’re delicate and weak
The voice from one who has the fear will start to speak
Did you ever wonder… what’s the purpose of the thunder?

When I tell you things that I’ve heard
You say I’m crazy and don’t accept my words
It’s because your philosophy is absurd
Now your hearts torn asunder… every time you hear the thunder!

When I was a boy, I didn’t know what was real
Living day to day doing what I feel
Thought I was a hero that I was made of steel
It was but a blunder… that’s before I heard the thunder!

Some people pray when their worries become great
Fall on their knees and hope it’s not too late
If only they’d remember that some words would change their fate
And the burden that they’re under…shattered by the thunder

One day if you’re shaken, you’ll begin to see
When you’re reminded that you’re delicate and weak
The voice from one who has the fear will start to speak
Did you ever wonder… what’s the purpose of thunder?
