Josh Wilson “Things That I’m Afraid Of”

“This song, maybe more than any other I’ve ever released, captures what it feels like for me to be a follower of Jesus. It’s very honest about the fact that we all have struggles, but it reminds us that God is so much greater. Jesus told us, ‘In this world, you will have trouble.’ But it’s so important to remember what He says right after that. ‘But take heart. For I have overcome this world.’ So, whatever we struggle with, whatever we’re afraid of – whether it’s anxiety, depression, loneliness, addiction, doubt – God is greater and He’s always with us. My favorite line in the song says, ‘There’s no place where my demons can’t find me, but just wait ‘til they see who’s standing behind me.’ Our troubles are big; our God is bigger – so much bigger than the things that I’m afraid of.” Josh Wilson
