Be of Strong Heart

We show courage in many aspect of life.  It takes courage to look at ourselves honestly and decide what to do.  It takes courage to go on and do what needs to be done.

Every time we respond to something that challenges us, we show courage.  It is easy to not take on challenges or to just give up in the face of them.  It takes courage to face them, whether we chose them or not.

Be with your feelings in the face of adversity.  Acknowledge how you feel, then sum up the courage, or pray for the courage, to do what has to be done.

It takes courage to make an effort to make a change in the world, no matter how small or large the change.  There are always adversaries arguing for things to stay the same.  Do not waste energy on anger or ill feeling for these adversaries.  They lack the courage you have.  Instead, bless them and save your energy for being brave.

Having courage is not about being fearless.  Having courage is about facing the fear and going on to do what needs to be done.  Courage goes hand-in-hand with faith because those living a courageous life know that they do not face challenges alone.  They believe that God would never give them more than they can handle.
