Inspiration has been coming at me in a rush this year, so I’m feeling the need to do a blog over the ones that stick. I hope this series has some nuggets of “inspire” in it for you.
My year started with a bang.
So much so, it would’ve been easy to hide from all the new things.
Many. Many much new things. (Bad grammar for emphasis.)
If it weren’t for the ongoing messages from Father God’s heart to mine about being brave.
And the messages were everywhere.
Delivered to me through people, comments, random things I’d see on social media, stuff I’d read, songs I’d hear (maybe I’ll dump ’em in a playlist for you later), things I’d think I’d hear in prayer, and through car sightings.
(Uh, yeah. Still haven’t figured out the car one fully, but get this: everywhere I look, I’m seeing Dodge Challengers. Yeah, that might not seem like anything to anyone else, but to me, that car is closely tied to NCIS: LA, and the big ex-Navy SEAL that drove it. One brave dude, always running toward trouble instead of away from it. Anyway, rabbit trail over.)
One of the inspiring messages about being brave came from Ps. Tim Ross.
I love listening to Pastor Tim because he is so real and raw and funny. And his voice inflections just bless me. A true Son, that one.
He gave a talk at the First Conference at my church on growth spurts and David and Goliath. I simply cannot get it out of my head!
Yeah, it inspired me that much.
It’s too good to not share.
And maybe you were needing a kick-in-the-pants dose of brave, too. So. Here.
I’ve skipped into one of my favorite parts of the talk. [Minute 21:34]
Watch the whole thing on YouTube if you get a spare forty minutes. 🙂
