Daily Prompt: Quote Me

Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

Nelson Mandela

Courage is not a lack of fear.  It is doing something even though you are afraid.   Sometimes we think those who are brave don’t feel fear.  More often, being brave means doing something in spite of the fear.

In other words, do it anyway!

Prayer for today:  Lord, please give us discernment to know those things that are in Your will for us to do.  Please calm our anxious thoughts and give us the courage to do those things You’ve called us to.  In Jesus’ name,  Amen.
