{teaching my kids to be BRAVE}

There are a few things that I pray for the most, as I raise my kids {well I pray for so many things…but these desires are at the core of my soul when I think about their lives ahead}. I pray that they learn to work hard, put their faith in Jesus, find contentment in the little things of life, learn to be grateful for what they already have and I really want to teach my kids to be BRAVE. I want them to stand up for what they believe is right. No matter what. If they have a desire to fly to the far corners of the earth to proclaim the Gospel and help those in need I hope I’m their biggest cheerleader. If they want to have a dangerous job because they are gifted at it and feel called to it I pray that my fears do not stand in their way. I want them to pursue and figure out what they believe at young ages without peer pressure to simply accept what is most popular. I pray they have the confidence to swim through all those confusing voices and desires out there to know who they are. I want them to be who they are even if it is not popular, safe or easy. I know that my fears could prevent them from pursuing hard things so I am trusting the Lord will guide me in knowing how to support them. I’m guessing that there will be times when I just need to sit back and pray and cling to these verses to see me through.

when i called

out to you,

you answered me.

you made me

STRONG & BRAVE.

psalm 138:3

~

so do not fear, for i am with you.

do not be dismayed, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you and help you

I will uphold you with my

righteous right hand.

isaiah 41:10

A while back I wrote about this when planning BLAKE’S sweet nursery.

You can read more about that HERE.

Can you relate to these feelings? These convictions? How do you want to teach your kids to be BRAVE? What verses do you cling to for strength, courage and bravery? Let’s keep talking about it.
