LeeAnn Taylor shared her story of brave yesterday by reminding us that God plants us where we are to teach us of His amazing love. It is the lesson of “bloom where you are planted”. Make the most of every situation and seek how you can honor God in the process.
Our misconceptions tell us brave has to be bigger and better in order to call it brave. This is not reality. Whenever we are asked to do something that is out of our comfort zone or that we want to say “no” to, is God’s way of calling us to strap on brave and trust Him in the process. God knows what He is doing every time. Do you believe this is true?

In the moment we accept brave as our “yes” for God’s will, we are given the tools we need to see it through. Our step toward God becomes His brave for us.
Let’s be brave in our journey!

Oh, boy. It’s not easy for me to be brave and trust God–despite all the times he has proven how trustworthy he is! I like to arrange and organize and ensure a perfect outcome. I’m learning (probably pretty slowly) to let God do the arranging and to bravely go wherever he leads.
You and I have a lot of similarities, Anita! God is so good and yet I find that there are days I am not sure of that at all. I am working on my brave and I pray you are too. Hugs and blessings!
Hi Mary! God knows what He is doing every time…that’s so true! The challenge for me is discerning what His will is, and then going forward. Even the discernment calls for bravery (at least for me!). Onward we go, strapping on the brave…
I believe if we step back and look at our day to day lives, we will find we are already brave. Every decision or step we take requires some kind of brave action. God is in everyone of those brave moments and knowing that He is going to be there is all we need. I need to strap on brave, but I am learning that I am much braver than I know. Thank you for stopping by. Hugs friend!
Yes, I believe, Mary! and I am so thankful! In this crazy, lost world, God knows what He is doing. All the time. And it is good, and perfect, and just. Amen!
God is good all the time. All the time He is good! Thank you for smiling through your comment today. I can feel it.
Good thoughts. There are so many different situations that requite bravery, not just the “big, out-there” things. And yielding to God, he gives us then what we need to do what He has called us to do.
That should be require, not requite. 🙂
Amen! God does always provide and the beautiful thing is that it is often in the most ordinary moments of our lives that we notice it the most. Brave faith is needed in our everyday lives because anytime we are asked to trust and release things to God, we are asked to be brave. Thank you for joining me today.
Ha! God must be trying to tell me something–I wrote about this very topic in my post last night for 31 Days of Re-Entry. Love this: “In the moment we accept brave as our “yes” for God’s will, we are given the tools we need to see it through. ” That is such a good reminder on days when we don’t think we can do what He asks of us. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and share what God has placed on your heart–He’s using it! Leslie
I absolutely love how our posts paralleled each others today. We both needed to be reminded that where we are at this time is exactly where God needs us to be. Now let’s go make the most of it. He sure loves to jump in and teach us through our own words and those of others. Love having you here today.
How true this is, Mary. I know in my own walk with the Lord there have been many times when I’ve needed ” to strap on brave and trust Him in the process” when I cannot see the way ahead or know the final outcome. It’s all about faith and trust in who He is and His essentially loving, merciful and grace-filled character. Thank you for helping us on the road to greater faith and stronger ‘brave’ with these inspiring posts! Bless you, friend. 🙂 x
I feel the need for brave faith often in my life. I need to learn how to release everything to God so that my brave faith can take over. That is the area I am currently working on. Praying for bigger faith for all of us. May we know God is who He says is and will do what He says He will do all the time. Blessings friend!
God knows what God is doing every time. Sometimes (read: most of the time) I so easily forget that!
It is so easy to forget that when life is throwing us curveballs, God is still in the details. My mantra needs to be God knows what He is doing every time! Amen! Hugs friend!
“Bloom where you are planted”- I love this idea. It’s easy to want to change our situation but it’s a great change of perspective to look instead for what God wants to teach us and how he wants us to honour him where we are.
A change in perspective helps us to see through God’s lens rather their our own limited eyes. May we all choose to bloom where we are planted for each season in our lives. Thank you for being here today.
Oh yes… my brave may look nothing like brave to someone else… but it’s those small yeses that add up big and before you know it – your brave is bigger and bolder, too!
One yes can lead to “big” things. God sure loves doing that too, doesn’t He? Even though are brave doesn’t look anything alike, God calls each of us to brave and our answer needs to be “yes”. Hugs friend!
Saying ‘yes’ to God’s will. Absolutely, Mary!
Even though I’m not quite sure what that will look like …
I think God wants to hear the “yes” first and then He will make known what the “it” is. Praying that God reveals His plan to both if us as we travel this season of transition. Blessings!
