But I Don't Feel Brave
They said I was strong
But I didn’t feel strong
I felt weak and tired and confused
They said I was brave
But I didn’t feel brave
I felt nervous and stressed and afraid
They said I was wise
But I sure didn’t feel wise
I felt bewildered and overwhelmed
As I scribbled notes during doctor visits
And researched available options
And cried out to God for help
The LORD is near to all who call on Him… Psalm 145:18
During Joe’s cancer journey, I didn’t often feel strong or capable; I just got out of bed each morning and did the next thing, and God met me right where I was and provided what I needed each day.
Maybe being strong and brave and wise isn’t always about how you feel.
Maybe sometimes it’s about what you do, regardless of how you feel.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Yes He does.
