It’s day 31. As you can see, I started out well, but my finish was pretty weak.
I’m glad I took the challenge. Please don’t ask me for a while if I’ll be doing it again. (big sigh…)
Your emails were a great encouragement to me. Together I think we’ve learned some things.
Living bravely is not a solo pursuit. We need each other.
Living bravely is not living perfectly. Waiting around for perfection keeps us from taking that first step.
Living bravely is embracing our stories and sharing them.
Living bravely is doing the thing afraid even when everything in us is screaming NO!
My life verse is Habakkuk 3:19.
The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!
We are brave girls only because the Lord is that for us – our personal bravery. Oh that we would no longer choose to stand still in terror! God has so much waiting for us just one step beyond standing still. He taught me that all over again just this week.
Let’s do this brave thing. And if you see someone standing still, reach out your hand and take that first step together.
Next week I’ll be finishing up the God’s Girls series. I have lots to share about what I’ve learned from those amazing, ordinary women. I hope you’ll join me.
