Happy fourth of July! I hope you’re celebrating with family and friends this weekend and getting some much needed time off from work! Just a short post to let you know I’m sharing over at www.TheBetterMom.com today all about bravery…by degrees. I tell the story of how my 3 ½ year old grandson taught me a huge life lesson while we were at the beach in June.
Here’s a snippet:
“Sometimes the youngest ones teach us the biggest lessons, if we’re willing to listen and keep our hearts open to the Spirit of God. The Father speaks to me in all kinds of ways and last week, he used my 3 ½ year old grandson to teach me a big life lesson about bravery.
Eli, my grandson, adores the water but he’s scared of it too. He thinks he’s a big boy till he’s confronted with the reality of letting go of what’s safe and launching out on his own. He wears this little floatie vest and it gives him confidence but still he clings to whoever has him at the moment. He’s completely safe with zero possibility of sinking and we told him over and over but he didn’t believe it. As we walked down the beach and approached the waves….”
Has God asked you to jump lately? Did you try to negotiate or doubt it was really His voice? Is He inviting you to take The God Dare? Join me and see what He taught me about achieving bravery by degrees.
