When I chose BRAVE as my One Word of 2015, I had no idea the path of bravery would take me into a closer walk with the Lord and lead me toward freedom in a way I've never experienced before. Sure, I've done a couple of brave things this year. I'm in a new job. I started an Etsy shop. I began sharing my artistic attempts online. I said yes to things I would have said no to before, just so I could say that I was being brave.
But what I am finding is that God is orchestrating a path into a sweet communion with Him through all this bravery. You see, bravery is not really being brave. It's being scared silly, yet taking the step to do it any because you know Who has your back and Who will catch you if you fall. It's about being okay with failure and enjoying the process in spite of the failure. It's about holding the Hand of God while leaping out of the boat, trusting that He can make you stand firm, knowing He loves you and has a great plan for your life.
I'm so excited to be alive in this year of Jubilee and cannot what to see what all God has in store. It is going to be a year of growth, bravery, solitude, and freedom....and so much more, I'm sure.
Have a blessed Monday!
