When the hardest “yes” is the answer you know you must give even though you are screaming “no” on the inside…
When a decision causes trepidation in your heart, but ultimately will provide comfort for your soul …
When saying “yes” is the bravest thing you will do…
then you know you have turned the corner to brave faith. You are one step closer to the brave that God knew you always had in you. The “yes” you answer is the one God has craved to hear since you were born.
This scenario played out not too long ago in my own life. A community I had been invited to join and spend time with was the very one that I now needed to say “no” to hanging with. A time to share encouragement every other weekend with other beautiful writers needed to happen in a different setting. God was closing the door on this weekend community in respect to what He knew I needed. Read more here of this difficult decision that has become a cornerstone to deepening my relationship with God.
Brave happens in every decision we make. You will find it in your yeses and noes. Brave is in you as you navigate your daily routines and seek to understand the challenges in front of you. Brave is in your everyday and this journey we are on together to brave faith is an example that even though you might not consider yourself “brave”, God and those around you do! Do you feel a difference since the first time you entered this walk with me? I know I do!
This is what the Lord says—
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
who teaches you what is good for you
and leads you along the paths you should follow. Isaiah 48:17
When we are asked to do the hard things and our reaction is to fight it every step of the way, we know God is leading us to a new brave. He is equipping us for the journey and He is making ready the path we need to follow.
Letting God take charge always leads us to our destination, which is life in and for Him. Brave faith is how we get there.
