Being Bold

Are you bold enough to take roses that someone has given you, throw them on the ground and stomp on them?  I mean really, that requires a bold person to do that!  Unfortunately, I was one of those ladies that was bold in a not so good way!  No, they weren’t real roses.  They were offers to come alongside and give practical help and pour compassion into me, love gifts from others.  I was bold enough to take their love gifts and stomp on them.  Wow.  Not the best way to become famous for being bold.  Thankfully, God had plans to exchange my boldness of self-sufficiency into being a bold receiver of His love and compassion, as well as, love and compassion from others!

Head over to read the rest of the story!  What a privilege I have to be featured on the Be Bold Series!  And y’all, let’s be real…this story is one of the hardest lessons I have had to learn and am still learning!  I have NOT totally arrived yet!
