Choose Brave Study Journal
There isn’t a woman on this earth who doesn’t struggle with fear, doubt, and uncertainty. Yet, through His Word, God lovingly reminds us over and over again not to live our lives in fear. Instead, He commands us to be strong and courageous…maybe even fearless. Why?
Because He is with us.“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”- Joshua 1:9

How can we choose to have courage when our worlds are falling apart? How can we choose brave over our fears? In this six-week study, we will focus our minds on God’s Truth and gain the strength we need to choose to be brave even when we don’t feel like it – even when we are scared.
Brave to fight the good fight.Brave to use our gifts. Brave to trust again.Brave in the midst of loss. Brave in facing our fears. Brave in uncertainty. God desires us not to live in fear but to live in His freedom and boldly step forward in faith, choosing to be brave despite our circumstances, despite the world around us…despite our fears and anxiety.
You are braver than you feel and stronger than you ever thought possible with God by your side and His Words in your heart. God has called you, my sweet sister, to choose brave. Let’s do this!

Deep down, I think we all want to be brave like the superheroes we see in the movies. We like the thought of saving the day, helping good triumph over evil, and justice prevail. Yet I know in our everyday worlds, choosing to be brave can be hard. Kids can be mean. Our world can be scary at times.
In this Love God Greatly Choose Brave for Kids study, we are going to learn how to: Be brave in facing your fears. Be brave to fight the good fight. Be brave to live counter-culturally. Be brave to put God first. Be brave when discouraged. So maybe choosing to be brave doesn’t mean we wear superhero capes with the letter “S” across our shirts…but it does mean we can learn to be brave when we understand that God is always by our side.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”- Joshua 1:9
God didn’t create you to live in fear, He made you to be strong and courageous through Him…kind of like a superhero. You and God…now that’s a pretty incredible team! Because of Jesus, you can be braver than you feel and stronger than you ever thought possible when He is by your side and His Words are in your heart. So let’s dig into God’s Word and learn how we can choose to be brave.

Hospitality. This is one of the areas I’d like to grow in 2019. I have two groups of people in my life. The relative few who can walk in my house unannounced because they've proven themselves loyal and love me despite my messes. And, those for whom I frantically clean...read more
