This verse crossed my path twice in one month, first in an email from my friend Julie and then on Courtney’s beautiful blog, Growing is Beautiful, as her verse of the month in February. Anytime a piece of Scripture falls into my lap more than once in a short period of time, I try to stop and take notice.
Sometimes the concepts of waiting and being bold and courageous seem like a contradiction. I think Jon Acuff’s piece on his blog today is one of the best examples of how to wait patiently for the Lord while being brave and courageous. We wait patiently by trusting in His timing, and we are brave and courageous in the meantime by doing what we need to do to get where we want to go, whether it’s toward better health (as my friend Karyn pointed out) or a dream.
I hope this verse fills all of us with lots of hope, courage, and faith this week.
How about you guys? Is there something you’re waiting on that you are being or could be brave and courageous in? I can think of a couple things in my life that I’m learning to be brave and courageous in as I wait.
