Be Brave 4 October 2019

Brave: possessing or exhibiting courage or courageous endurance (dictionary.com)

What does it mean to be brave? How are you brave in your life? Where do you need to be or wish you were brave? Who is on your list of brave people?

Determined to find that brave or courage in my life, I’m reading a daily devotional with my best friend about being brave. For me, it’s places where I need to speak up. But even when I have, it is met with a wall. What exactly do brave people do when they hit those hard stops? I’m pretty sure they don’t just back down and shut up.

One of the bravest people in my life was my sister, Cathy. Unafraid to march into executive offices to demand patient rights, she fought for basic needs of her charges. I doubt there was very much grace in her words, but I also know that God patted her on the back for doing the work of love here on Earth.

Tell me your stories of bravery please. I want to hear them.

    I think cancer survivors are some of the bravest people I know. To go through all that treatment to survive and to continue loving God through it is total bravery.
