Braver Living

By nature, I am a very peaceful, calm and passive person. Those are good traits to have and can be a good balance to others who have those traits in a smaller quantity!  But  a key to everything is balance, every trait has its strengths and also tendency for a weakness.  

Sometimes those quiet traits keep our faith quiet..too quiet to stop the voices of fear, timidity and the overwhelming vulnerability when we face trials and hardships. There are times in life and in our faith when we need to rise up and stand bold. 

The great news is that we don't have to rely on our personality, but our strength and boldness comes from God.  His Word is filled with verses to equip us to be bold and courageous. To remind us that in our weakness, His strength can come through us. 

I'm joining in a 31 day challenge to read a verse a day for braver living.  These reminders from the Bible are perfect to put God's promises in our minds and hearts.  What we fill our mind with is so important, our thoughts will become our actions and will develop our character.  Here is a link to the printable challenge if you would like to stand a little bolder with me!
