Today on Bold Steps, we’re going to be talking about courage. So, how would you define courage? Is it an internal trait or attribute we possess, or does finding the courage require something physical from us? Those are the questions we’re looking at today … Pastor Mark Jobe says that courage is the mental or moral strength needed to venture on, persevere, and to withstand danger. In the simplest terms, courage is what’s needed to move you forward in your spiritual life—despite your fears, and anxiety, and feeling the need to ignore God’s timing and take control yourself. Fear causes us to compromise in the waiting room and take on roles we were never meant to take.
