Pastor Sharon said so many inspiring things during her sermon today –– yes, I could hardly wait to share my notes from the sermon!
Everyone in Church was greatly motivated and mightily encouraged.
She promised to post a full summary of the sermon here within the week and I’m really looking forward to it.
In the meantime, here’s the distillate of her teaching from my notes.
Be Courageous and don’t Lose Your Faith.
Dreams fail, not because someone couldn’t but because someone quit.
What once roared at you will eventually shrink and vanish, if you are courageous and don’t lose your faith.
Fear = False Evidence Appearing Real. (I really loved this one!)
Courage is the insistence to do right even when the crowd sees the wrong as ‘this is it’.
“Courage is the ability to stand up and speak; to sit down and listen.” ~ Winston Churchill
Your life shrinks or expands in direct proportion to your level of courage.
Faith doesn’t always make sense but it always makes miracles. (This too hit me real hard!)
Boldness has power, magic, and genius in it. (This is probably my favorite from the entire sermon.)
Courage opens doors of blessings for you because fortune favours the bold.
Courage preserves the destiny of others. (She explained that when we dare to step out in boldness to obey God’s instructions and pursue our dreams, other people’s lives are made the better for it.)
Courage guarantees deliverance for others.
(I was absolutely fascinated by her closing remarks!)
“Your courage and boldness excites God.”
~ Pastor Sharon D Favour
