Day One:

My Brave Dream

This is what the Lord says to the house of Israel: Seek Me and Live.
Amos 5:4 (NIV)

Bravery is about so much more than just the big things. Being brave is about stepping out of your comfortable life and into the life God has given you and the dreams He has for you. Bravery is about trusting that God is bigger than all your hopes, dreams and fears.

The verse above has been my heart-verse for a long time. It seems to echo throughout all the busy moments and quiet retreats. I can fill my days up with a lot of things, but the question is always the same – am I truly seeking God? Am I seeking His plan for my life?

Because, that’s where LIFE really happens. When we seek God – when we look to Him to order and name our days, that’s when we LIVE. We live in the abundance of His love, the promise that He will work good in our lives and the freedom of His sacrifice.

Truly live today. Seek God. Ask Him what he would have you do with the next 24 hours. Then, live that with joy and bravery.

God has bigger dreams for you than you can even imagine. You just have to be brave enough to ask Him to make your days His.
