It Takes Courage

Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.  – Maya Angelou 

It is so easy to be inspired when you hear about ordinary people doing great things. But when it comes to facing the challenges of our own life we usually need a double dose of Courage to make it through.

Courage is the ability to disregard fear, and that means-

Taking a leap of faith:

It takes courage to keep on going when you are not feeling your best. It takes courage to keep on giving when you get nothing in return. But no matter what happens each day, we wake up believing that  the sun will shine again.

Faith is in operation every day of our lives. It is a very powerful force, and it has corresponding action. Every day, by faith we are acting on what we believe whether good or bad.

The God-kind of faith is actually the highest form of faith. And it is the one that He rewards most. This kind of faith will require us to leave our Comfort Zone and step out on a limb. But when we choose this level of faith it will Dare us to BELIEVE ~ DREAM BIG ~ and do SOMETHING that we have never done before.
