Brave Girls

I have never thought of myself as brave. I am shy and quiet and will do almost anything to avoid conflict of any kind. I don't want to rock the boat and I don't want to draw attention to myself. No, brave is not me.

Once I became a mother, I deeply wanted my children to be brave. How can I possibly teach them to be brave, when bravery is the last thing that describes me!?

The answer is simple: by the Word of God.

I have to dig into His Word and find out who I am in Him. That no matter what happens, how much I mess up or how goofy I look doing it, He still loves and treasures me. No matter what hardship I face, He is there. I can be brave in the Father because He always has my back.

Am I brave now? Not really, but I am getting there. It is something I have to intentionally work on. Am I teaching my kids to be brave? You bet. By guiding them to the Bible and the brave examples God gives us.
