It Takes Courage

It takes courage
to tell the truth
to follow your heart
to do something alone
to make yourself vulnerable
to leave a longtime love
to trust again
to speak up
to wait on God’s best
to start something new
to admit your own ignorance
to believe things will change
to give expecting nothing in return
to be yourself

Often we find God saying throughout Scripture, “Be strong and courageous.” “Take heart.” “Take courage.” While negative situations come to deflate and discourage us, God gives us the necessary ingredient to face life’s challenges head on—courage.

Let God give you the courage you need in order to do what you never thought you could do. Let Him give you the courage to succeed past your limitations, to face tomorrow, to enjoy life today, to face your fears, to change your world, to face your inner critic, and to embrace the truth of who you are in Him.

Prayer: Thank You Father. Help me be courageous. You are my strength and my confidence. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me do what I have been so afraid to do. I know You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind. Help me understand what that means for me. In Jesus Name.

(Read 2 Timothy 1:7)
