Defining Courage


  • Defining Courage...   

        It seems to me that this is on ongoing exercise, at least for me... When Jesus is standing in front of me with His hand outstretched , on the water mind you, I know its going to be hard.  Maybe really hard... The thing is, no matter how  difficult the challenge nor how much I fight it , its going to work out in my own best interest in the end.  Funny, how I can't seem to remember that when He first reaches for my hand...( when difficulties arise ), I keep thinking this fighting back fear thing will get easier, but then what need would there be for Trust... He says trust Me for a reason.  He knows how to maneuver through the troubled waters of life better than I .  He knows the path of least resistance isn't always the best way to grow strength and character in us. Okay, so yes I suppose I need to remember that what I want may need to take a backseat to my souls growth at times, although there's Always blessings that come when we bravely trust Him.   And when the waters are truly too turbulent for our weary souls, well it is at that moment that He lifts us right up out of the water and carries us to safety. It is those particular moments of my life in which I have experienced the most excruciating pain, physically and emotionally that I have also come to know the most exquisitely beautiful joy of His glorious and all consuming love.  When I am scared and weak His strength and love shine the brightest. 



The next time my Lord asks me to trust Him, I can only pray will be met with a more timely response to grace. How about you ? What is God asking you trust Him with today ?

Jesus says, " Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you." So bravely, call out His name today, right there in the midst of your struggle, your pain, your brokenness... reach out for the only hand that has the power to lift you up , pull you through and carry you. He did not give you a spirit of fear, but of love. May you be blessed with peace through the storms of life today...
