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

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about what it means to be truly brave. Doing grand, big, extraordinary things requires a great deal of courage. But sometimes little things like getting up in the morning and going to work or doing your laundry or praying can require bravery. If that is the case, then I have been doing my best to be brave every single day this week. And I thank God because I would not be able to do it without Him.

“The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” ~ Psalm 118:6
