courage

By February 6, 2011Leadership

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.  The brave man is not the one who does not feel afraid, but who conquers fear.” —  Nelson Mandela.

This from a man who spent 27 years in a South African prison for standing up against apartheid – racial inequalities.

Growth in life is not the absence of pivotal circumstances.  It is the result of allowing God to work in those circumstances.

The most pivotal circumstance in all of history was when Jesus prayed before going to the cross.  Not my will but yours be done.

We can overcome our pivotal circumstances because Jesus faced his.
