Support comes and goes so it is important we know how to walk out life without any crutches. Sometimes we need to get quiet and hear our own hearts beat and our own lungs breathe. Being still and quiet with zero distractions to consider life is a good thing. Am I saying do not have friends – absolutely not – I can count how many I have on one hand and I’m thankful for them. However friends cannot fill you up and give you substance. The days have arrived when we must grab hold of the courage to like ourselves just like we are WHILE GOD IS changing us into His likeness. Therefore, be BOLD and let yourself become still – even if its only for 5 minutes a day at first. Then, show yourself RESPECT and remind yourself of His dying value and HIS amazing RESURRECTION for you. Take ACTION and don’t allow the quiet to scare you away. Be VICTORIOUS and move away from past fears into current BRAVERY! Finally, ENCOURAGE yourself and see what God does in your life! As BRAVERY becomes a lifestyle, perhaps our choices will reflect it. As I grow older and hopefully wiser, I bravely find myself more often than not, responding to the Ability to be Still with a simple yes and I stop, breathe and thank God I can say yes and stop and breathe.
Until soon – share with a friend –
