I am Brave – two

“I am brave when I am vulnerable.”
“I am brave when I love all people – not just people like me.”
“I am brave when I can smile through the tears.”
“I am brave when I believe God’s promises even before I experience them.”

“Instead of unbelief.”
“Instead of being nervous.”
“Instead of fearing the future.”
… I am brave
“Instead of feeling weak.”
“Instead of staying in my comfort zone.”
“Instead of focusing on my limitations.”
“Instead of trying to control.”
“Instead of living in anxiety.”
… I am brave
“Instead of waiting for someone else to take action.”
“I am willing to risk for Him.”
“Being brave means accomplishing what others have said is impossible.”

Psalm 121 – The Assent : God Protects Us

1-2 I look up to the mountains and hills,
Longing for God’s help.
But then I realize that our true help and protection
Comes only from the Lord,
Our Creator who made the heavens and the earth.
3 He will guard and guide me,
Never letting me stumble or fall.
God is my Keeper;
He will never forget or ignore me.
4 He will never slumber nor sleep;
He is he Guardian-God for His people, Israel.
5 Jehovah himself will watch over you;
He’s always at your side to
Shelter you safely in His presence.
6 He’s protecting you from all danger
Both day and night.
7 He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity
As he continually watches over you.
8 You will be guarded by God Himself.
You will be safe when you leave your home,
And safely you will return.
He will protect you now
And He’ll protect you for evermore!
