Be brave enough to stand up and tell them their opinion is not as important as what your heart is telling you.

Be brave enough to sit still and speak from your heart, from the center of your vulnerability.

Be brave enough to write the things that seem so simple -- and then, when you read them back, shock you with their baldfacedness.

Be brave enough to tell the truth. All of it.

Be brave enough to take a bite, to take a sip.

Be brave enough to ask.

Be brave enough to hold his hand.

Be brave enough to be quiet.

Be brave enough to be loud.

Be brave enough to tell it like it is.

Be brave enough to speak in specifics.

Be brave enough to fall in love.

Be brave enough to walk away.

Be brave enough to not need someone.

Be brave enough to need them more than you could possibly bear.

Be brave enough to push your body beyond what you thought possible.

Be brave enough to take a nap.

Be brave enough to raise your hand.

Be brave enough to move away.

Be brave enough to stay right where you are.

Brave doesn't always look glamorous.

Be brave enough to claim what belongs to you.

This is your life. Be brave enough.

And then, at the end of the day --

You will learn:

You aren't brave enough.

We never are.

But Jesus is, and He has given us all the courage in the world to step out. To say yes. To say no. To fall hard.

So instead of being enough,

Let's be His.
