This has been around for a long time, but every time I come across it, I’m thankful to read it again:
This is probably the kind of courage we need right now. Not to roar, but to simply keep going. To keep trying. To keep holding to our faith, even in the midst of times that are more trying than anything we have ever lived through.
It is courage to not give up. It is courage to look for the good in each day. It is courage to simply be kind. It is even courage to rest, when that is what you need.
So today, I pray courage for you – not the roaring kind, but the quiet and steady kind. And when your courage is failing, I pray that God will supply you from his endless riches what you do not have in yourself.
Until tomorrow, dear friends, be courageous in the Lord.
