Bravery is contagious. Be brave in Christ, and be brave for Christ. Have courage with yourself and have courage for others. God’s Holy Spirit dwells in each of us and we are each created in His image. He is where our strength comes from.
Our Father speaks: “Your help comes from Me, and from no one else. I alone am the One who has brought you to this place of freedom and joy. Stay in deep communion with Me and I will order your steps and make your way perfect. I have gone before you and removed those distractions, now come and be My vessel of honour that I will use and promote. Make Me the centre of your attention and your mindset will be unshakeable. The time has come, your season of soaring has arrived. Expect to see what eyes have never seen and to hear what ears have never heard. Every one of your priorities will change as I draw you close to My heart, for I am the Father of Mercies.”
The Passion Translation
Psalm 27: 13-14
13 I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
14Wait for the Lord;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the Lord!
24Be strong, and let your heart take courage,
all you who wait for the Lord.
SFO RULE 13:
As the Father sees in every person the features of his Son, the firstborn of many brothers and sisters, so the Secular Franciscans with a gentle and courteous spirit accept all people as a gift of the Lord and an image of Christ.
SFO RULE 19:
… Messengers of perfect joy in every circumstance, they should strive to bring joy and hope to others.
