As I work on building a bank of stories to post each day, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite quotes on the weekend, little nuggets to muse a bit more about until we get back together again. This one is about Courage…just in case you need a boost today.
Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them. Ralph Waldo Emerson
So come on, let’s walk together today, standing firm in our convictions, believing in the path we’ve taken, brave enough to correct any course as we see a need, and moving forward with a courageous and stout heart. Remember everyone you know needs a little more courage in some area of life. You do too. Embrace your courage because God has already promised to strengthen you. For as Isaiah (30:15) says, In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. And of course, Phil.4:13 reminds us, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Be strong. The world needs you to be outrageously courageous today!
