“Faith is active.” – Greg Laurie in a recent harvest.org devotional
In his devotional, Greg Laurie wrote, “Faith is like a muscle. The more we use it, the stronger it becomes…Notice the emphasis is on faith doing things. Faith is praying, faith is staying, and faith is keeping. Faith is active.”
These words underscore my tagline “Courage: the intersection of faith and grit.”
To find courage, we first build our faith, actively using it, i.e., with grit.
The characters in my books are thrown into tough situations (domestic abuse, breast cancer, abandonment, the need to forgive or ask forgiveness, etc.) in which courage is needed. But each struggles with believing and being courageous. As the stories progress, the characters, with the help of the Word and those who speak into their lives, begin stretching their faith and stepping out with grit, actively exercising their increasing faith.
I write stories of courage at the intersection of faith and grit to give the reader a story to vicariously experience how someone found their courage and thereby encouraging that reader.
We all need courage in the great and small details of our lives. How are you actively exercising your faith in order to be courageous?
I invite you to pull up your comfy easy chair, a cup of your favorite beverage, and settle in to one of my stories of courage. See my books by jumping over to my books page https://www.susankbeatty.com/books/
