Courage means having faith in God, even when we are afraid.  God is here to write a story with our lives.  How can we live with courage?  Sometimes it is hard to follow the Gospel, the teachings of Jesus.  We want to fight when we should forgive.  We want to run when we should stay.  Live with courage this week and know that God will continue to stand with you.
Prayer: Dear God, Jesus showed courage when he refused to give in and take the easy way out. Jesus took up his cross and wrote a story of love with his life, death and resurrection.  Help me to have courage. AMEN
