I wouldn't say that bold courage is my forte. Some days wimpering timidity is the best I can muster. And I'm not embarrassed to admit that. Well, okay, maybe a little. But even if I do act like that Old Testament guy, Gideon, and try to live life while hiding in a winepress, it doesn't make God ashamed of me. He just drops in, pulls up a barstool and tells me what's on His mind anyway. He lets me tell Him why I'm hiding and then He reminds me Who has my back. He does. Always has - always will. I'll drink to that.
