Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)


2 Timothy 1:7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

It takes courage to step out of your comfort level and try something different. It takes courage to speak your hopes and dreams out loud. It takes courage to believe in the faithfulness of God and the desires He puts within us. It takes courage to believe in ourself.

It takes courage to stop running from life. It takes courage to make decisions and stand behind them. It takes courage to stand alone and not follow the crowd. It takes courage to recognize our weaknesses and do something about it. It takes courage to let go of controlling everything.


Courage grows as we mature spiritually. Courage grows as we become comfortable in who we are in Christ. Courage grows when we take responsibility for our choices. Courage grows when we stop making excuses. Courage grows when we become honest with ourself. Courage grows when we realize the past no longer holds us captive.

As we get older, it’s takes strength and courage to live life without others approval. As we get older, it takes courage to continue regardless of critics. (smile)

Be encouraged to do it, by faith, until your courage is stronger that doubt, fear, or fill in the blank _____________.

Be blessed and enjoy your Sunday! (smile)
