Courage is getting up and doing

What your heart desires.

Courage is a fire that burns

Brightly in your eyes.

Courage is the power to stand up for

Yourself without help from others.

Have the courage of a Lion and Roar baby, Roar

Until you Soar into new heights.


Courage is loving yourself enough to

Know you deserve better.

Courage is knowing the risks but,

Doing it anyway.

Courage is remaining true to

Who you are and

What you believe in.

Courage is saying “I will survive”

Even with tears in your eyes.

Courage is keeping your eyes on the prize.

Courage is feeling in your soul

That you will rise.


Courage is hearing the sound of success in your ears.

Courage is trusting yourself and God

Knowing you’ll be guided through

No matter what you do.

Courage is what we all have within us

We must use it

For it is necessary like a shoe.

I carry my courage with pride.

When you hear the word Faith what thoughts come to your mind? 





Holy Spirit

Faith is not what you see with natural eyes, but what you see with your spiritual eyes.  Faith is what you feel in your heart.  Faith says “Keep on fighting and never give up until you succeed”.  Faith in God is what you need to depend on.  Not horoscopes.  Not the news.  Not what your friends say.  Faith is true.

There were times when all I had to hold onto was my Faith especially when I first moved back to the U.K. from the U.S.A. 

No it wasn’t always easy, but I knew my Faith in God would pull me through.  When I felt down I would play gospel praise and worship music, read scriptures aloud, pray to God, watch Christian television shows and movies.  It was truly helpful and lifted my spirit up significantly. 

The bible says in Hebrews 10:22 “Let’s draw near with a true heart in fullness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and having our body washed with pure water”. 

Hebrews 11:6 “But without Faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”.

My prayer for you is that you keep the Faith and allow the holy spirit to burn bright in your life.
