Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability

about-brene-brownTell fearful souls, "Courage! Take heart! God is here, right here, on his way to put things right And redress all wrongs. He's on his way! He'll save you!" Isaiah 35

And those who know thy name put their trust in thee, for thou, O LORD, hast not forsaken those who seek thee.Psalm 9

To be vulnerable with one another, to be vulnerable with God, we need trust. God's love for us--the real and necessary sacrificial death of Jesus--shows his willingness to be vulnerable to us, the betrayers, the forgetful ones, the people who worship themselves. The resurrection of Christ and the intercession of His Spirit gives us the courage to leave fear and know how safe and secure we are with our maker, our God, our interecessor, our one true love. Father, teach us to be openly in love with you throughout our lives. Father, fill our words with healing, our thoughts with intercession, and our actions with grace.
