New Kind of Brave

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.” Psalm 56:3

Have you ever heard of “word prompt”? It is where you have a certain word for the new year. I have never done it nor even tried. Tonight, as I was browsing online, I saw a post about it. And I clicked on the link, out of curiosity or maybe boredom to some extent. After answering a few questions, it gave me my word for the coming year…BRAVE.


Is this a joke or what? This particular word, hit me big time. Like, someone threw a rock at me and hit me in the head.

Surely this is not a coincidence.

The past year has been a struggle on my part. The last few days consisted of doctor’s visits and aches and pains…physically, emotionally and mentally.

I have this cloud of doubts and fear hanging over my head and following me around that reminds me how weak I am, that I can’t do it. It seems like everything and every dreams and goals that I wanted to achieve, I never finish. I keep stepping back. I am not good and strong enough. This I believed, until now….



Maybe God knows I need this assurance.

His assurance.

That I need to be brave in Him. That I need to believe in Him more than ever. That I need to start believing in myself. That I need to move forward with Him. That in my moments of loneliness and weakness; whenever doubts take over and whenever I feel like I can’t do it and I am not good and strong enough……

“It’s in Christ that we find who we are and what we are living for.”

He is there…

With me.

Beside me.

Behind me.

Ahead of me.

I just have to believe.

And trust.

And hold on to Him.

Be brave in Him.

And with Him.

“Not by my strength, but His.”
