We all have to summon courage in our lives. Whether it is the courage to walk across the threshold into toddler church without your mom or standing up for a friend who is being teased about her height. Or lack thereof.
As a mom, I find myself daily tapping into God's promise to be with me wherever I go (Joshua 1:10) and mustering up courage to face the tasks at hand ... parenting with consistency, saying "no" to E10+ video games, holding my tantruming three-year old, training my kids up to be nice. This challenging adventure called parenting demands more courage than I have within me ... but God's Spirit fills in the gaps.
Here are a few encouraging words regarding courage to build you up in your courageousness!
Courage is being scared to death ... and saddling up anyway.
Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.
Courage is the bravery to do new things.
All of us have moments in our lives that test our courage.
Taking children into a house with a white carpet is one of them.
When going into battle, you don't run away.
Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.
Robert Louis Stevenson
If there's something that you don't know [what to do],
but you know Jesus is with you.
Courage is found in unlikely places.
Taking action when you don't think you can, but it needs to be done.
Courage is not simply one of the virtues,
but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
"May my children always be strong and courageous
in their character and in their actions."
