BRAVE: possessing or exhibiting
courage or courageous endurance.
-being brave can take us by surprise and leave
us with a new found faith and strength
that will put one foot in front of the other
and keep going...just one more more day!
BRAVE: whispers "I think I can, I think I can"
and makes it new words, "I KNOW I can"
“As we come to grips with our own selfishness and stupidity, we make friends with the impostor and accept that we are impoverished and broken and realize that, if we were not, we would be God. The art of gentleness toward ourselves leads to being gentle with others -- and is a natural prerequisite for our presence to God in prayer.” Brennan Manning, Abba's Child
