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.

Isaiah 40:29


Yes He does.
