are you being courageous?

are you being the person God called you to be?  as a believer?  as a child?  as a parent?  as a spouse?  as... who you are? 
it takes courage.
i challenge you to dig into scripture.  through the Bible (God's holy word) find out who it is God's calling you to be.  if you know who... then i challenge you to dig further into the Bible and find out if you're playing the role as Christ would. 
before you take this challenge i want to forewarn you... it'll take courage.  it won't be easy. 

are you believing as Christ called us to believe?  (there's a lot to it)
are you living like God wants a child to live?  (there's a WHOLE lot to it)
are you parenting as God commands?  are you honoring God in your relationship with your spouse?  fulfilling the duties He has given you?  (the Bible is full of instruction)

you have been equiped with courage.  are you going to use it? 


Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."  !!!!!!

all i can say is, "i'm tryin'". because, if i were that person, i'd be perfect. and i'm definitely NOT perfect. each day, hour, and minute is a new one and with that i try to live as Christ-like as i can. some days i'm better at reading the scriptures and praying than others. i want to be compassionate, and charitable, and patient, and humble, and so many other things. :) great challenge to read scripture and become closer to what God intends for us to become!

God doesn't intend for us to be perfect, or to ever become perfect. He doesn't not because He doesn't want that but because He knows we're not and we'll never be. however, he has given us a whole lot of instructions in righteousnes and that's for our benefit, not His.
i'm so thankful that God gave us the Bible, to read and study and grow closer to Him through. THE BIBLE is our handbook. God is so good!
