I'm thankful for...courage


It's not Gospel. But Matt Damon sure makes it sound so.
(Have you seen We Bought a Zoo? Enjoyable movie, certainly under appreciated, in my opinion. Here's a clip.)

Courage to tell someone you love the truth.
Courage to hit publish, send, delete.

Courage to leave when you recognize that you don't quite fit.

Courage to try a spin class, or sign up for a race.
Courage to confess

Courage to be tested, face the results. 
Courage to quit.

Courage to say I'm sorry.
Courage to choose what matters most to you.

Courage to keep your vow.
Courage to believe.

I'm thankful for the courageous people dedicated to rescuing victims of human trafficking.
And thankful for those that fight courageously for our freedom.

My life, my marriage, & my family is better because of courage.
I have courage because I was raised by a single, capable woman.
I have courage because many grown ups told me I could do anything I wanted to do as I grew.
I have courage because I believe in God. I believe the promises in the Bible. 

“Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. 
Don’t give them a second thought because GOD, your God, is striding ahead of you. 
He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.” 
Deut 31:6 (MSG)

 "Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love." I Cor 16:13-14 (NLT)
