The difference between courage and brashness is wisdom. The fool may go into challenges with gusto but will fail. Courage does not mean a lack of fear. Courage is moving forward despite fear. Christian courage means trusting that the Lord is with you even in times of trouble. Is there something you’ve been putting off doing because it makes you anxious just thinking about it? Ignoring these things doesn’t make them go away. They only get more frightful for us.
God of might, be my surety as I face the difficulties that lie ahead.
Steady my hand that I may do the work you have set before me.
Remove the obstacles that keep me from moving forward
and lead the way that I may follow.
Ask God for the grace to take your first step today in doing what you know must be done.
