The word brave can mean many things to many people.
It’s brave for a person to visit a foreign country on a mission trip and the decide to live there.
It’s also brave to try drugs or sleep around or any other act of self inflicted harm.
The very meaning of the word is; ready to face and endure danger or pain.
To me, today, Brave = Faith.
It means sharing a story, even if it changes your opinion of me
It means being uncomfortable
It means loving the unlovely
Forgiving the unforgivable
Reaching the unreached
Believing the impossible
Sacrificing my wants over your needs
It means living from the inside out, heart and soul exposed, offering hope to the hopeless with eyes fixed on Jesus.
oh, friend. brave = faith. letting that truth set in a bit. visiting from Gypsy Mama today and glad to have read this! wonderful words.
Thank you for reading and commenting Sarah.
“being uncomfortable.” this is so where i struggle, but am trying to work through it.
sounds like a good challenge. carry on!
This is definitely the last one that came for me Steph.
It is indeed difficult.
The more I practiced things that stripped me from my comfort zone, the better I felt. It has no doubt been extremely challenging and encouraging at the same time.
thanks for ‘bravely’ sharing your thoughts , Joy !
Thank you for reading, friend.
