Are you courageous? Are you afraid?
What about now, are you afraid? Wht about in the next hour or two, will there be a situation where you have to choose between courage and fear? Will you need to make a decision or plan a course of action that may take a bit of courageous determination or will your fear of failure tempt you to follow the path of least resistance, the easy road you’ve taken before, a road whwere you won’t face the possibility of making a mistake.
Freedom from fear only comes when we cut the chains that keep us shackled to old behaviors. Courage isn’t the absence of fear or the sense of recklessness, but instead the strength to forge ahead on a unfamiliar path using mindful risk.
Embrace the courage to make a mistake today. You will be rewarded with spiritual growth.
