Counterfeit Strength

Allow Courage

Mental or moral strength to persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.

Merrian-Webster Dictionary

STRENGTH.

PERSERVERENCE.

BOLDNESS.

Today, I had the honor of witnessing the manifestation of many seeds of courage on display at a ribbon cutting ceremony and Grand Opening of a business. I left the event excited about the future, and proud of the business owner, who had undoubtedly pressed past, and jumped over many obstacles to realize her dream.

There was something special about seeing the tangible fruit of courage. I was inspired, and I started to think about what courage really is, versus the misconceptions of it. Continue reading “Allow Courage”

Waiting

I have yet to meet a person who enjoys waiting. I know I don’t, and we live in a society that insists on everything being instant!  Yet, Patience is described as a ”spiritual fruit” in the Bible, a fruit that every follower of Christ should exemplify in our everyday living.  There’s no wonder why it’s essential that we learn to wait on God  because waiting on answered prayers to manifest is one of the best ways to develop the  fruit of patience in our lives.
