Courage

27 Feb

Courage is the stuff inside us that keeps us running towards those things that scare us in spite of the desire to turn and run the other way.  When the fray starts, we all desire to take cover.  It is natural for us to seek self-preservation.  But courage is what causes heroes to run INTO a fire when everyone else runs away.

Honestly, courage is what helps us function in situations that we SOOO do not want to be a part of … Like when we walk through difficult times with family and/or friends.  Life can take all of us down roads that are difficult when we will see some of those we love run for the hills, and some will walk with us no matter how tough.  Those that stay are the courageous ones.

Courage, and trust, and obedience keep us walking in the light of the Lord even though everything in our minds tells us to do things our way.  God has a much better plan for each of us than we could ever conceive.  When we let go, admit this, and follow Him, it takes great courage and faith.  And that is something we lack …

But today, your challenge is TAKE COURAGE.  FOLLOW HIM REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE WORLD TELLS YOU.  WHEN YOU KNOW HE IS LEADING YOU, JUST FOLLOW HIM.

TRUST HIM!!!
