Courage means strength, inner strength. Courage is commendable. It took courage for the French people in World War 2 and for the Kuwaiti people in Desert Storm to have resistance movements during their times of captivity and occupation.
It takes courage to love a person with a compulsive make-up. It also takes courage to stand up to someone enraged at another party when we feel ‘caught in the middle.’ This courage is not based on size, familial relationship, or friendship. This courage must come from the LORD.
A lot of people who know the LORD have to rely on Him to get up each day When I went through a prolonged time of depression, a friend knew what I meant when I said, “I’m making it.” One day, she told me that was something to praise God for.
Lord, please help me to be courageous during hard times. I love You and want to live for you at all times.
