Break Up With Fear

What it Sounds Like:
“The Breakup Song” is best described as an upbeat, empowering anthem to sing over ourselves and against fear. Francesca sets the tone with the opening lyrics, “Sick and tired of being sick and tired / Had as much of you as I can take / I’m so done, so over being afraid.” Musically the song builds to match the intensity of the lyrics and if you like “Real Love” by Blanca, this song also has a striking message that stays with you throughout the day.
Francesca has consistently impressed me with her mature faith and sincere desire to serve Jesus. I love how expressive the song is, and it was written from a place of reflecting on what it means to be free from fear and to trust in God's plans for our lives. The song is intended to lead listeners to that place also as Francesca invites listeners to sing along, “Fear, you don’t own me!” The message is based on several biblical truths, including 1 John 4:18-19: "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love because He first loved us,” and 2 Timothy 1:7: “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

I have found that by being washed by the water of the Word, I am strengthened with the truth that God wants us to know that fear, worry and being anxious is not His plan for our lives. By reading the Bible every day, God wants us to have a daily reminder not to be afraid. This song is all about submitting all of your fears, worries, anxieties and stress to God and letting Him be your guide. God wants to walk beside you, and He wants us to be bold and unafraid. This song is about submitting to the Lordship of Jesus over our lives. We all deal with some level of fear, worry and anxiety. God knows that about us, and after I read somewhere that He tells us to not have fear or worry in His Word 365 times, enough for one time each day, I have been attentive to that concept in my daily Bible study. This song is an excellent companion to sing over your life, “Fear, you will never be welcome here!”
