Five Minute Friday: Brave

Times of change can be downright scary. Especially when there are a lot of unknowns.

Paul Cox shared with us five powerful messages about “The Dangerous Man.” He turned what it means to be dangerous for God inside out and upside down. In one story Paul shares that he was going out of the house into the darkness and his little girl wants to go with him.

He asks her, “But aren’t you afraid of the darkness?”

Go {beyond} the Surface

I thought you might like an update of what’s happened since January when I took hold of that one-ish word resolution:

Go {beyond}.

When I’d climbed in, buckled up and revved the engine, ready for God to launch me right out of my comfort zone.

Listening: God Listens. God Loves.

He hears his children and answers them. That’s hard to grasp, that our cries are heard. Our pleading. Our whispered prayers. Even though He knows our thoughts, God loves to hear us call on Him.

I asked God to forgive my sins and received His gift of everlasting life. It delighted Him to hear me calling for Him to save me. He had been calling me all my life.

I was hit by a car when I went for a run. I could have been killed if things would have played out a bit differently.
