True Courage


Do you think you have to be a superhero to be strong and courageous? The good news is, you don’t!

Ever think that you have to be a superhero to be strong and courageous? Good news! You don’t have to be.

True courage only happens when you are scared to do something that may be difficult or requires you to step out of your comfort zone. It may sound strange hearing this, but it is true.

I have gotten to know the true definition of courage quite well over the past several years. For instance, the summer before my 7th grade year, I was thrown from a horse. I was terrified to get back on a horse, but I eventually did. I was really scared to do this, but with God’s help, I managed to do it anyway.

Having true courage through fear also applies to whatever God has called us to do in our lives. There is a very good chance that our calling will not be easy. Despite this, God has made us a pivotal promise for our future.

In Joshua 1:9, “God tells us to be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord, your God will be with you, wherever you go.”

So no matter what our calling is in life, we can be confident that God will always be with us. He will never give us anything that we cannot handle.

Are you afraid to speak in front of large groups of people? Give your worries to God!

Scared that a large assignment you turned into your teacher is not good enough? Give it to God!

1 Peter 5:7 tells us to “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”

We have nothing to be afraid of when we have God by our side. He is our ultimate provider, and will always be there to protect us.
