Bravely Silencing Imposter Syndrome: Letting God Use What's in Our Hands

God's Brave Women - Nicole's Story
I used to think being brave meant you had to conquer something, but it’s really so much more. It’s about being committed to leading. It involves a posture of humility, patience, stepping out of our comfort zones, and living with our eyes and heart open to the world around us.
Being brave reminds me to commit to the long game of leading because our own storylines develop slowly and can take longer to piece together than we hoped.

We’re watching Game of Thrones right now for the first time. It took me 11 years to agree to watch it with my husband. I may not have come to the table willingly, but I’m loving it! It’s an epic story of nine noble families fighting for control over their lands. There’s compassion, acceptance, cunning, legacy, empowerment, freedom, and so much heroic bravery.
It’s easy to think about bravery when it comes to war. A person has to be inherently brave to run in when most of us would turn and flee. Their service is selfless, and even though they benefit if their side wins, they're fighting for more than just personal benefit. They’re fighting for what they believe in.
