When I think of being bold, I think of Hebrews 4:16:

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

The phrase come boldly has always conjured up images of approaching God with assurance and over-the-top confidence, and that would be an accurate picture! But what if I don’t feel confident or bold? What then?

When it comes to gleaning a deeper understating of scripture, I’m a Greek word geek! So I looked up boldly and discovered it also means hiding nothing and speaking freely. Plainly. Without comparison.

Being you.

Boldly you.

Several years ago, that was the worst thing someone could say to me. I hated me! I’d rather be you, because when I compared my insides to your outsides, you were a much better option!
