Courage

A couple of weeks ago when Dallas and I were on our date we decided to do some rock scrambling.

One characteristic we want for our girls to possess is courage.

Courage is knowing that the task at hand is big and will require risk yet getting started anyhow. Courage is knowing that the trek will often require more than one move and getting started on the first one. Courage requires tenacity and risk. Courage steps up and puts the hand on the wall and begins the trek.

Another thing about courage is that what takes courage for me may be no big deal for you. Courage is relative to your size, age, resources, experience, etc.

What is common to all though is that the biggest break-through’s are typically preceded by some act or string of acts that required courage.

When Dallas scrambled to the top of the wall we had a party! Yelling! High-Fiving! Celebrating her success!  Courageous action preceded raucous celebration! And it will in your life too.

So, are you ready to put your hand on the wall and begin the climb?
