Kyrah Brave

My heart is so heavy. It’s comforting to know that Donnie is with Jesus now. I can’t imagine how much joy, how much celebration is happening as we’re mourning. What an incredible example he set in how to live a life glorifying and pleasing to God. How to be bold and brave. How to love and lead. How to be faithful and obedient. All while leaving trails of fire everywhere he went. I remember every Donnie Moore Camp I went to. Each one I encountered my Jesus. Because of His camps, I am who I am today. It was only one week of every year, but it never failed to leave echoes of Gods truth and promises in my heart that can never be forgotten. I’m so grateful for Donnie’s life. And him saying yes to his call. Without it, I probably wouldn’t have found this purpose and confidence at such a young age. Without it, I wouldn’t be this brave. I remember the year my camp team won 1st place. It was 2013. We were team “Bravery” which is so fitting it’s almost like God planned it (lol). And I remember during worship I wrote this poem. And on the last day of camp I went up and shared my poem with everyone at camp. And I remember the fire I felt. The urgency. The boldness. The bravery. The passion that was unlocked. And Donnie hugged me so tight. I remember him telling me that I was a preacher. And that my words were anointed. And he told me to never stop speaking to this generation. The poem was called “We are the revival we desire”. It was about this generation rising up, and leaving trails of fire everywhere we walked. It was about stepping up and being who we were meant to be. Stopping at nothing to take the dreams given to us and making them reality, as if everything depended on it. Because it does. Today is so sad, because someone I admired and loved so deeply is gone. The generation after us won’t have Donnie Moore camps. But this reminds me that WE are the future. The generation after us won’t have the worship music that we listen to now. They won’t read the books we read. They won’t be impacted and touched by the things that touched us. WE have to make the new worship music. WE have to write the poems. WE have to the write books and be bold enough to speak and create the conferences and art that point back to Jesus. WE have to preach to the masses. WE have to study and go to school. WE have to turn ideas into reality. WE have to love the lost. WE have to give our hearts to the youth. We are the revival. WE must be the next trail blazers. WE must be fearless leaders. WE must be humble world changers. WE must be brave. WE must be bold. WE must give everything up. WE are the new legacies.
