"You can be comfortable or courageous, but you cannot be both."
"Take time to rest in Him and find your comfort and assurance within His embrace, and as you seek and pursue all that He has for you, remember His face, turning over His shoulder as He leads you into battle after battle and triumph after triumph, sword in hand and courage in heart. Hold your head high, take a firm grasp of His hand as He reaches for you, and allow Him to bring you into full alignment with all He desires for you internally and externally. Remember to breathe, and take heart in knowing that He is gracious, loving and patient with you, and He champions you, supports you and cherishes you. Set your eyes upon the shadow of protection that His body walking ahead of you casts, and go about your ways with Him at the forefront of your mind. Allow His leading to bring you peace amongst the chaos and stillness amongst the rush and movements of life and ministry. Take time to lean into His love, smell the sweetness of His personal heart for you, and let His name forever be on your lips, in the very same way that honey is to a bee, and blossoms are to spring. Be captivated in Him, that He may be your soul devotion and your only focus forevermore."
