As I begin to process all that took place in the span of those few days, I find myself drawn to Joshua 1:9 which says "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Doubt debilitates us from being able to see that God, the one who calls us, is with us. We are not alone! He commands, but he also enables us to be strong and courageous. So when we follow, when we take that first step and every step there after even when it is uncertain and scary, when we use our talents great or small, when we simply say yes to God we are Brave and God is there with us.
So today, I choose to be Brave. To be a child of God, neighbor, pastor, coordinator, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, etc.. I may not feel brave. I may not feel as if what I do or say is great worth, but I know that the one who calls is Great and he will be faithful. Through God's strength and courage, I will Be Brave!
