Pick Up Courage

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

What does it mean to have “courage” or to be “courageous”? Webster’s dictionary defines courage as being “the quality of being brave or valor” To me, courage is standing up for what you believe no matter what. To me, courage is being fearful but acting anyway and lastly courage means going against the norm of what everyone else believes is the “socially accepted” thing to do, say, or be and doing your own thing. In some way, shape, form, or fashion we choose to be courageous from the moment we wake up, until the time we fall asleep at night. The other day before I walked out of the door, the holy spirit said to me “every day you either choose to pick up your gifts and dreams or  you choose to lay them down. Which do you choose today?” I nearly fell to the ground and wept, because it touched a deep inner place in my soul that only God and I know exists. As a woman, business woman, mother, wife, nurturer, provider, and all of those wonderful roles that I play each and everyday, the very core of who I am is expressed through the gifts that flow effortlessly through me and the same is true for you. It is how God made us. The gift that God planted in us is at the very core of our being, just as a writer, writes, and a singer.. sings. Each and every person on this planet was born with a God-given gift, many if not all of us with multiple gifts, my question to you…do you choose to pick up your gift or lay it down today?
