I am reviewing a copy of Courageous Women of the Bible through Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley:
In Courageous Women of the Bible we are reminded that Courage allows us opportunities we would normally shrink back from and avoid. It is pointed out too that courage allows us to plant our feet towards the path towards obedient living. It is pointed out too that even though we cannot do everything perfectly we can strive to do everything courageously. It is reminded too that Godly Courage is mobilized by an obedient spirit. We become courageous when we realize we are living for a higher cause.
We are reminded too that a willing spilling is what courage demands, it doesn’t demand anything more or less.
Deborah was a woman of real courage, who like you and me faced real life struggles. And she faced real enemies, but she courageously
chose to leave behind her fears and follow the path God had for her.
We are reminded too that courage is sometimes messy. The women with the issue of blood had courage when she touched Jesus garment and believed she was healed. We are reminded too that humility requires courage.
We are reminded too that Generosity can require courage too. We are reminded too Giving What You Have, As You Ate Takes courage as well.
Abigail had courage as well. It took her courage to meet David. She had the courage to walk by faith.
Bathsheba was another woman of courage, her situation meant that she had to have the courage to fight the temptation she faced.
Mary Mother Of Jesus had courage as she learned she was pregnant with the Son of God, as she raised that precious child, our Savior.
Mary Magdalene had the courage to follow Jesus, even as enemies and threats became very real. She believed when many did not.
I give Courageous Women of the Bible five out of five stars!
