Brave, Bold, Fierce

Wednesday, July 30, 2014


This has always been inside me, but it took too long for me to find the courage to live it. Don't do that. 


Friends, hear me... You could stay in your space and be perfectly content and comfortable. You can tell yourself that the world outside your neighborhood or church or city is too dangerous, too difficult, too different, too risky and you can move through this life not ever have knowing you missed a thing. Except the reality is that you will miss so much. In fact, what you will have missed could likely be the very thing you need the most. 


Stop letting fear of people and places consume and confine you. If I'd have listened to all the "warnings" in my life, the voices in my head, the fears that creep up in my throat, I'd have missed the most beautiful things, this little face being one of them. 



She's brave and bold and fierce. 


I'm so glad I didn't miss her.


Friends, it's time to kick fear and the false sense of control and security in the face and go live this life to the fullest. 


You just might find something you never thought you needed. 


What the world needs is more people like this little one to be brave and bold and fierce....


"Have I not commanded you be strong and courageous, do not be afraid. The Lord will fight for you wherever you go."     Joshua 1:9
