What is courage? I'm asking this because I decided it might be what's best for my case of today's blues.*
I'd love to hear your thoughts on courage, so I invite you to leave a comment to let me know what you think.
Courage is taking the next step when I have a heart that won't stop being achy.
Courage is knowing tomorrow will be better.
Courage is calling a friend to say "I need to talk."
Courage is realizing I don't have all the answers.
Courage is walking through the pain instead of masking it. It toughens one's soul like hot coals toughen one's soles.
Courage is admitting to God I can't handle it on my own. It's being willing to say I'm weak.
Courage is remembering God doesn't change; He still cares and He's there when I don't "feel" Him.
Courage is always loving the other person (any other person) more than myself.
Courage is being willing to accept the heavy cross. (Wisdom is letting God help me carry it. :)
Courage is pulling on the last little bit of what's in me to remain positive.
Courage is faith, courage is prayer, courage is Christ in the Mass.
Courage is knowing there is hope because of the overwhelming beauty of creation all around me.
Courage is knowing that I am not God; courage is trust in He who is.
Courage is doing the next right thing and...
Courage is being willing to wait.
*It is always hard for me to admit to being down; I suppose that takes courage, too. David wrote Psalms of both praise and sorrow, and it's interesting that both are part of scripture.
