“By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another,” (John 13:35, NIV)
“I discovered this journey was all about being vulnerable. It’s the raw, real human experiences that can pull us out of ourselves and allow us to look to someone else.
Being brave is being intentional. It’s setting aside yourself and loving someone well. It’s more than a quick nice phrase in their direction. It’s reaching into the deep with that person.
Truthfully, it’s not easy to do. It’s time consuming and often wearying to love another person purposefully. It requires sacrifice and faith, relying on the Lord’s character, knowing He is good despite your circumstances.”
Today I am guest posting over at Becky Beresford’s Brave Women Series with thoughts on loving others when it’s hard. A timely piece in light of society’s current circumstances. Check it out HERE
