I sped through the book titled "The Gifts of Imperfection" by Brene Brown this afternoon and jotted down a few impactful things

Yes. I am imperfect, vulnerable, and sometimes afraid. 
That fact does not change the truth that I am also brave, and worthy of love and belonging. 

why is that so hard to grasp?  It's hard to admit both of those statements. 
they involve a terrible amount of courage, yet also show a beautifully placed identity. 
we sin, we fall short, and  yes- we're timid. 
however,  Jesus is bigger than all of that.  He makes us brave, He's formed us in his image- we  *are* sons and daughters of the Most High and that, in and of itself, makes us worthy of love and belonging.

the root of the word courage is -COR. Latin for heart.

originally, courage meant to speak one's mind by telling one's heart. 
speaking h o n e s t l y + o p e n l y  has been confused with the idea of heroics. 
Where original courage is, vulnerability is on the line.

be still and take courage. 

"in the end, God's love always wins." 
if our anchors are firmly founded in the rock of our Savior, they will hold. No matter the force of the wind, the strength of the tides, or the height of the waves.
