Another 5 Minute Friday post…
Brave is saying yes when you really, really, REALLY want to say no.Especially when your heart has been broken by saying yes.
When a heart has been completely shattered and carefully mended by God more than once, it can become so easy to guard it…hide it…seal it. But that is not what God has called me to. He is asking me, yet again, to put my tender spirit at risk. Scared…breathless…awe-struck…questioning…these are just a few of the emotions staring me in the face.
Does it sometimes seem that God aims a target right at that one thing that really causes you to stop in your tracks? It seems that way to me. But what can seem the opposite of loving is really a beautiful picture of grace. No matter how deep the wound when that target finds its mark, he is right there. Ready to hold us…ready to heal us.
Brave is answering yes even while your voice quivers with fear. It’s trusting. Hard. Worth it.
