Word of the Week

Word of the Week: Courage

Want to share this with someone?

When is the last time you knew you were supposed to do something but were afraid?

You felt the nudge. You heard the call. You saw the first step clearly.

But then your mind rushed with what if questions. You heard all the naysayers’ opinions clouding your head. You knew the obstacles you’d face if you kept going.

So much in you said stop! And so much in your felt like go!

To this enter this week's word: courage. Courage: the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain without fear; bravery.

Talking about growing in courage might just seem like one more thing that is too much of an ask.

You’re tired.

You’re overwhelmed with LIFE.

You cannot absolutely cannot do ONE more thing that is not on your already weird daily schedule.

But I am not talking about one more thing the way that our dentist reminds us to remember to floss or our doctor tells us to eat more vegetables . . .

I am talking about a way of living where our lives are in alignment with who you really are. I am talking about taking steps in the direction of YOUR voice that God has given YOU to use to bring light and hope to the world.

As terrible as it feels to do that _______ thing that is on your heart and mind as what you know the Spirit is nudging you to do next—I tell you THIS IS THE MOMENT WHERE YOUR LIFE GETS SO GOOD.

Recently I had an experience where I had to chose between an opportunity similar to what I've always done and on the other side a chance to stand up for myself in a way that feel really right but risky.

In being courageous, maybe I'd loose a friend?

Maybe I'd loose the chance to do something I love for a very long time.

Maybe people would think (insert bad things here) of me. But I knew what I had to do even if it hurt . . .

I think you know what you need to do just as I did. God is with you. God is guiding you. So, my friend, gather your courage and take the next step soon.

Cheering you on now and always-
