What is it? Truth is, there is no formula and there are no rules. There is the Bible, our guidebook for all things, but other than that, being brave is organic and spiritual and an unique journey for each person.
I won’t be saying, “Here is exactly what courage looks like” or “If you want to really risk in a way that impacts the people around you, do these particular things.” I don’t think that works. I don’t think you need me to tell you what to do. I think you know. (Or if you don’t, you will.)
I think you just need a little pregame warm-up. A little something to oomph you along.
An understanding of the map you are holding.
I want to show you that you are braver than you know, and with that knowledge in your back pocket, you can change your world.
Courage is doing things even when you’re scared.
Being brave isn’t something that happens when you’re not scared anymore.
Brave people don’t stop hearing the whispers of fear.
They hear the whispers but take action anyway.
Being brave is hearing that voice of fear in your head,
but saying, “Okay, but the truth is, God made me on purpose and for a purpose.”
I can tell you that the moments of my greatest fears—those times when I was sure I was going to wimp out under the pressure of it all—have also been the open doors to the greatest changes in my life.
So I step out, full of fear, but trusting that God is on the other side in new and wonderful ways.
And so far? He always is.
He will be for you too.
Stay close to His truth and step out in faith , courage and live each day
