As mentioned yesterday, I am behind in this 31 day challenge. I hope you – my readers – don’t mind but I am determined to keep going. That being said here is #19 of the Five Minute Free Writes in the Write 31 Day challenge.
Today’s word is:
This is a hard word for me to write about because I’ll just be honest – I.am.not.BRAVE!!! Not in trying new things. Not in dealing with hardship. And especially not in trying new foods. I’m just not.
The definition of BRAVE is:
possessing or exhibiting courage or courageous endurance
I could write for way more than 5 minutes about my inability to be BRAVE. Instead, I think I will just simply share a song and a quote.
This song gives me hope and well…BRAVERY, if I can call it that, when I really listen to it’s words and understand that any courage I need truly comes from the Lord.
Because no fear can hinder now the promises You made
And my lack of BRAVERY comes with my desire to know the future. If I just knew how a situation would turn out. If I just had a sign or something. But so often we don’t. We have to BRAVELY trust the Lord with the perfect plan that He has for us.
It’s like Ruth when she followed Naomi into a land that she was not from to worship a God she had not worshiped before. But oh the blessing that came from Ruth being BRAVE.
I love this quote by Corrie Ten Boom.
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
Wise words from a woman who had to be BRAVE.
My time is up!
Until tomorrow…Joy to You!
