God calls us to be strong and courageous in life.
He gives us a reason, THE REASON, why we can be strong and courageous. If we are going where He has called us to go, if we are doing what He has called us to do, we can be strong and courageous because He is already there.
This world doesn't need any more cowards. Life is full of them. But every single person who is at this present moment, cowardly, can be courageous if he, if she would hold onto the fact that God is there.
Choose courage. Act courageously even if you don't feel it. You are worth that. Your life is worth that. Don't have any regrets this year.
