cour·age: Strength in the face of pain or grief.
Most people only have courage for the moment. A brief moment of courage to do what’s right, to make the call, to refuse to compromise.
The truth is, courage really only works if you keep it.
Be defined by your courage. Include it in your character arsenal. Don’t settle for a moment of courage. You’re capable of more.
3 times in the Old Testament book Joshua 1 God told Joshua to be strong and courageous. Why? Because life is a fight. Because faith is a fight. Life is filled with both battles and blessings. It takes courage to live by faith. It takes courage to stand for what’s right, and keep standing.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
