"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear" Ambrose Redmoon
Friends always tell me I have courage....the guts to do what they can't. I don't often feel very brave. I actually feel pretty chicken-hearted every time I need to do something that's different or a challenge. I drive myself and everyone around me crazy.... wondering if I should do the thing or not. But then I think.....what would happen if I don't.....That's when I know....I have to take that risk. I have to go for that thing.
And if He's with me.....it'll turn out okay. It's Him that makes the difference. It's Him that gives me the courage to go for it. It's Him that makes me brave when everything in me is screaming 'run.' 'don't do it.' And I think it's even Him that puts me in those scary situation.....to stretch me...to help me reach higher....and to live better.
