The story behind “Brave”
Early one morning I received a call from a dear friend of mine, in tears as she was just given terrible news of a severe health condition that she was facing. I could hear the overwhelming, frightened sadness in her voice. Immediately, my heart began to hurt for her and as soon as we finished our call I began to lift her up in prayer. As I was praying and interceding for her the Lord began speaking to me. I grabbed my phone and started noting everything He was saying to me. It was a beautiful yet powerful poetic word full of hope, life, and the promises of God. This poem “Brave” has brought much comfort and peace to her, myself, and others who have heard it. I know the Lord wants it shared with others.
I can recall countless times throughout my life when I felt hopeless, broken, and afraid. Afraid of my circumstances, afraid to be me, afraid of the unknown, until God's love and mercy reached down, He scooped me into the palm of His hands removing me from the fear that entrapped me. His love is life changing, full of grace and restoration.
There is no end to the goodness, mercy, love, and forgiveness that God pours out upon his people every day. No matter what you are facing, be BRAVE, God will never cease to be your blessing.
