It’s Friday. I’m a little sluggish this morning. I have my tea and my timer is set.

You know the drill….

Here I go….

Five Minute Friday: Courage by Dana-Pittman



I read the prompt and I had to suppress a gasp. Story…

In my quiet time I’m reading through Acts.

And for some reason I’ve been stuck there for a while.

I keep reading Paul’s story over and over and over.

It’s amazing to me.

It has me thinking about my story, my walk.

Am I as bold…

Do I exhibit his courage…

Will my life be changed to the degree that I’m not the old me any more?

Then I recall that my walk is uniquely mine.

That I am special.



The apple of His eye.

But I dare not hide behind His adoration without sharing this precious gift with the world.

My mind circles back to…

Am I bold…

Am I courageous…

Am I ….




Question: Do you go about your work with boldness and/or courage? Tell me about it.

    I am reading Bible cover to cover this year. And the stories in are always so thought provoking and encouraging to be bolder in our faith. Great post

      Cassi, I agree. The last couple of years I’ve read the whole bible in 90 days at the beginning of the year. For the rest of the year I usually study through the people, places, and stories that leaped out during that time. This is one of those stories. 🙂

    Challenging thoughts, Dana. I am reading through the Bible this year and I am currently in the book of Acts. Paul’s courage is so inspiring.

      He is. I love his passion. It’s making view my walk with a different perspective.

      I think any day now…I’ll move on. But my heart is settled here for a moment. 🙂
