"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." (2 Timothy 1:7 ESV)
God has made us brave, not fearful beings. In a forty-day devotional format, author and blogger Kelly Johnson invites you to consider a new way of thinking about what it means to be brave and challenges you to seek a greater intimacy with God and the people God has placed in your life.
Through Scripture, stories, prayers, and thought-provoking questions, you will recognize the seeds of divinely inspired bravery and learn the strength found in community. Using letters of the word brave as a guide, Being Brave highlights what Gods Word has to say about the characteristics of bravery: Bold, Resilient, Authentic, Vulnerable, and Engaged and Empowered by the Spirit.
Banish the fear that holds you back. You are a brave soldier!
RobbyeFayeAnniston, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5On Being BraveJanuary 19, 2018RobbyeFayeAnniston, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Kelly Johnson's book, Being Brave: A 40-Day Journey to the Life God Dreams for You, is a 40-day devotional. The book is divided, counting the introduction, into six chapters broken into daily devotionals. Each day starts with Bible verses, followed by the devotional section, consisting primarily of personal insights or anecdotes. The day's lesson concludes with perspicacious questions and a prayer for the day. She ends the book with an invitation from God to start an adventure and Scripture references relating to fear and courage.
Kelly delves into the life of Christ and those closest to Him during the last weeks leading up to His crucifixion. She focuses on His teachings to the disciples and His bravery, courage and unimaginable love for mankind.
Being Brave provides us with the necessary means to overcome our thoughts, doubts, anxieties and apprehensions and take the actions needed to move into a more significant and personally fulfilling life of bravery.
We, as readers, are challenged and encouraged to"Be Brave," to let go of our fears and pre-conceived ideas of ourselves and become the person God wants and intends for us to be.
I received this book from NetGalley. However, I was under no obligation to post a review.
smiliejen5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring, thought provoking devotionalDecember 23, 2017smiliejenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Being Brave: A 40-Day Journey to the Life God Dreams for You by Kelly Johnson
This devotional breaks down the acronym BRAVE into 6 parts: Bold, Resilient, Authentic, Vulnerable, Engaged and bonus Empowered. These characteristics are vital in becoming brave and living out the life God intended you to live.
Kelly Johnson provides the reader with daily scripture verses, personal stories/testimonies through her own journey in leading a life driven by stepping out of her comfort zone to do brave things as well as several thought provoking questions at the end of each daily devotion to get the reader thinking about what it looks like in their life to live out these brave qualities as well as to push themselves to step out in faith to do the hard things that require bravery. She pushes her readers to challenge themselves in finding their lifes purpose and to follow Gods lead even when it is hard or seems impossible.
The devotional is small enough to toss in your purse and carry with you and the chapters are short enough for even the busiest person to squeeze into their day. It makes for a great gift too.
I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
