I have gotten so sucked in that show that I can't even walk outside right now, because I MUST combine the latest episode into my daily constitutional. (I just said that in an English accent, which I have quite perfected after all this delightful BBC love + Downton Abbey.) (Someday my English loveys, I shall come for you and sip tea with you!!) (That was not a threat.)
our faith makes us brave. I had been crying for a full five minutes before that but that moment was the ugly cry.
facing one of my biggest personal fears. It's one of those fears that is really all about me- it shouldn't be, and if I wasn't so selfish it probably wouldn't be one of my biggest fears!! Just being honest. The point is this. It's a fear because I lack faith!
If I had more faith, I would be BRAVE!
being thankful in ALL circumstances is one of the surest ways to grow those baby seeds of faith! (See how I did that... I just threw in something that connected babies and being thankful.)
I don't know where you're at, but I have gotten a ton of private feedback from many of you as I talk about being thankful versus fearful. So I can't think that I'm the only one here. It's that moment when you're doing something you are terrified of, and as you step forward, though you want to run the other way, you turn your eyes and heart upward and say, "Thank You God, for this opportunity," and that thanks moves you forward into braver territory. That sort of thing. In HIS POWER and His strength, we can find our courage and we can do things! (I want to end this on a fist bump to each of you.) Go girls! (And a few boys.) (grin.)
Give thanks... which builds our faith as we recognize that He is in charge... which makes us brave to do hard and scary things= we all win.
