Feeling Courageous Yet?

I have to write about courage again today... over the past months I've needed a lot of that and felt like I had so little. I also realized in looking through my posts, that it seemed to me that I write a lot about courage. I think it takes a lot of it to live this life and that I admire it in others. People who have the courage to use their gifts and talents  to help, serve, lead, speak up, create beauty, heal; in ways too numerous to mention but they're all important and vital to our being.   If you're low on courage too, remember that our courage comes from above. God not only uses the courageous, He uses the quiet and broken and meek. Look at Moses, who I so often can relate to - he felt so inadequate, God made Moses just the way He wanted him; a perfect person to lead with just the perfect gifts to do the job He wanted, but Moses felt so inadequate. No doubt, Moses was beating himself up over past failures instead of looking at possibilities available with heavenly help.  How is your courage meter today?

Joshua 1:9 - Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee whithersoever thou goest.
