"Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the LORD." Psalm 31:24
When I think of courage, I mostly think of courage in the face of danger. I am thankful that I feel safe with The Husband. And I'm even more thankful that we've never had to face danger, now that I think of it. But I like that comfort -- in our house, riding with him in the car... I feel safe.
But the kind of courage she's talking about is... Does he have the courage to take an unpopular stand, is he courageous in his faith? Is he a stickler for the truth?
The Husband is not afraid to talk about his faith, he definitely doesn't mind if his opinion isn't the most popular when he is right. He seeks the truth and stands up for it.
I love him for that.
Husband, I love how safe I feel with you. I am glad you are not afraid to stand up for what's right, even if it's not the popular opinion. That you're brave enough to stand up for the truth. I don't only love you for it, I respect you for it, and I hope you know that.
