To Be Brave — 25 Comments

  1. Dear Barbie,
    I was so happy to see you at Jen’s place for inRL…and you are radiating His light when you point us to Him…Yes, nothing apart from Him…may God give you the courage to go forth with your dreams…hugs to you 🙂

  2. Yes, yes, yes…it’s all Him.

    and you are, friend…I see Him shining through you.
    Bravery is a beautiful thing on you.

    love you!

  3. “To step into the scary dreams that lay hidden in my heart.” Love that sentence. That is brave! I have dreams that are hidden in my heart…..that will have to happen in His timing and I have to trust that HE will fulfill the desires of my heart in the meantime. But stepping out in faith can be scary because when it’s God it usually isn’t attainable in our own strength. Loved your post. Beautiful blog. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Blessings to you!!

  4. Beautiful post, friend. And that verse at the end? What hope we have, knowing we are never alone and don’t have to rely on ourselves to have courage, strength or bravery!

  5. Barbie! I am nothing, do nothing, and have nothing apart from him – right alongside you. I can’t wait to see how He uses you as you step out in brave faith for your next adventure!

  6. I hear ya! Yes, I want to be brave every minute of my life. I want to tell the flesh “no” and answer “yes” to His leading instead. I want to go beyond what I know and closer to Him. Doing that isn’t easy and can be scary. Oh, but how I want to be brave that way.

  7. Your words touched my heart deeply.
    “To believe that I am beautiful.
    To believe that I have something to offer.”
    I spoke to a group of women last night on supporting our military and someone posted pictures of me speaking and at first glance I decided I looked horrible and I could have done better, but then I realized this was Satan. I took brave steps to stand up before this group and share what God has called me to do…share on supporting our military.
    With Him, I am beautiful. With Him, I have much to offer.
    Thank you for being brave and sharing your heart, Barbie!

  8. I am in tears right now. I am in the middle of stepping into a dream that has been in my heart for years. Into a dream fog of unknown. Your words touched me right where I needed. Thank you for being brave and sharing your heart.

  9. I so appreciate your honesty, Barbie! And what a gift we have been given to KNOW that without Him we can do nothing. I am so encouraged when I am reminded that I don’t have to be brave in my own strength!
    And on a side note- you ARE beautiful! I am always encouraged by your words and am thankful for your faithfulness of sharing your gift of writing. So be brave in Him, sweet sister!

  10. Dear Barbie
    I admire the way you cope with all your trials! You do not allow it to make you believe lies about your Father. That takes a lot of bravery!
    Much love

  11. Yes, Barbie…without him we are nothing. You are beautiful, my friend. I would love to meet you in person, give you a big hug and talk about all the ways you are beautiful and brave.
