Can you read that last line on this bedside tablet of mine? I keep paper and pen with me at all times, even during the night, because ideas and inspiration come and go as quickly as sleep comes and goes.
The first few lines were scribbled weeks before that last line and they all reveal the elusive confidence that sweeps in with one wind and out with the next. In that last line on my butterfly tablet I wrote that..."I have no right to write about conquering fear."
Our own thoughts can lie to us. We hear the voices in our heads and can choose which to believe and which to ignore. It would be...and is...so easy to listen to the negative voices. If I decide to agree with that last line, then I am free to stop trying. Free to say "never mind, I have nothing to offer anyone so I might as well shut up now." Free to sit in my own failure and blame everyone else for my choice.
BUT, He makes me brave. My God, who I do not understand, do not always listen to and makes me crazy sometimes...my God loves me. It makes no sense, but He loves me and that big, crazy overwhelming love makes me brave. I have attempted to describe His waves of love before. My written words always left me with a sense of disappointment that I could not conjure up for you the true sensation of being tumbled over by His love.
My new theme song!...BRAVE
