Everyday Grace

Everyday Grace: Finding Courage in Everyday Life

Christian courage is the willingness to say and do the right thing regardless of the cost. Jesus promised that nothing on earth was going to be easy, and some times seem more difficult than others; we live in one such time. What can you do to find courage in everyday life?

  • Make specific plans. If you know you’re going into a situation that’s going to demand that you stand up for your beliefs, think about it ahead of time. Practice what your response will be. The more prepared you are, the less scary things will be.
  • Find role models. You’re not the first person who has had to be courageous. The Bible is filled with stories of people who were scared but moved forward anyway; so are the lives of the saints. Fill your heart and mind with them.
  • Pray without ceasing. You’re not in this alone: the Holy Spirit is with you every step of the way, in every conversation and every awkward situation and every danger. Do not hesitate to call for help: that’s what the Spirit is there for!

Life can be scary, and times can be challenging, but when you’re called to be courageous, you have tools you can use to help you. You have this!

  1. In my home state they’d look at you like you needed a lobotomy. Where I live now Jesus is invited in most homes/hearts. Its a relief.
