1. The ability to do something that frightens one.
2. Strength in the face of pain or grief.
I need courage today, because I'm having back x-rays done in an hour to see what needs to be done to fix a 3(+) year old injury. It's not debilitating, but having lived with chronic pain for so long, my nerves are shot (and there is everything else that contributes, too), and if I am to get to a healthy and productive lifestyle like I want to, this needs to be seen about.
I also need courage, because I am applying for 4 job positions in an effort to become financially stable. I know the economy is bad; I keep hearing people say that, but there are a few companies hiring and I have 4 kids to raise and dreams to achieve. I need at least a modest cash flow to make both of those things happen.
In continuing with yesterday's praise of the movie Courageous, I'm posting Casting Crown's song to match for your Music Monday enjoyment.
What plans and dreams do you have for today that will take courage?
