Where Courage Comes From
Fear never really goes away. It can be resisted. It can be overcome. But it can't be eliminated. When I'm in a situation where I appear to be the underdog, I use a little trick to stack the deck in my favor. It works. My secret weapon is prayer. It changes the outcome. Why? Because courage gives me the strength to open the door and enter the arena no matter how big or scary looking my opponent is.
What are you afraid of? Give prayer a try. I recommend you treat prayer like a muscle. In order to get stronger, you need to exercise daily. The more you pray, the more you will shape and tone your prayer muscle. Others will look at you and say, "Wow, look how much courage that person has."
