Brave. It’s not a word I use to describe myself often.
When I was a little girl, I was afraid of the dark, so much so I slept with the bathroom light on that was across the hall from my room. I had other fears as a child, some came true, some never did. Bravery was not in my vocabulary.
Walking as a woman of the Word, a disciple of Christ, a daughter of the King of Kings, sometimes we are called to be brave. When the world is hurting and hopeless, will we bravely share our faith with others? When life as we know it ceases to exist, will we bravely embrace the next chapter? When we feel lost and confused, hurting from so many seasons of disappointment, will we reach out to take His hand again, allowing Him to lead us into the unknown?Will we reach out to take His hand again, allowing Him to lead us into the unknown? #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet
Life won’t always go as planned, and while I haven’t faced any BIG ROCKS in my life compared to some, I have had to remember that God is always there, right in front of me, with his hands open to receive me.God is always there, right in front of me, with his hands open to receive me. #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet
He doesn’t want us to walk into the unknown alone. He knows the end from the beginning, and He promises to lead us through the dark seasons. He promises to make us brave, to increase our faith for the journey, and to never let us go until we come into the light again.
Is there a situation in your life where you are needing to be brave? Take hold of God’s hand and allow Him to lead you into the unknown. He is faithful to bring you through to the other side. Allow Him to make you brave.
