Courage Doesn't Roar

Courage does not always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
~Mary Anne Radmacher~

I will try again tomorrow . . .
because He promised to never leave me alone . . .
because He promised that His grace is sufficient.

It's funny that you said the lyrics on my post touched you tonight.....these words were what I needed tonight! Thanks Glenda. God bless you.

Wonderful post about courage, Glenda. We do need to have courage to keep on keeping on --and to never give up.
Hugs,
Betsy

Beautiful post, Glenda! When the going gets tough, we have to have more courage to keep going.

A lovely tree silhouette. And what a very insightful thought! I bet quite a few people we know have quiet courage and we don't even know about it.

I love that quote Glenda. And it applies to everyone, from the addict who looks toward tomorrow for a fresh start, to the weary worker who knows that the next day will offer refreshment and second chances.

I have many nights that I go to bed and say, "I will try again tomorrow." Thank God that his mercies are new each morning. Carla

Beautiful, as usual! I love your pictures and song choices.

It was good to see you over at my place today - I've missed you. I am envious of your kids being in Hawaii - we're really feeling "homesick", though we've only been there twice.

I've enjoyed your quotes from Reuben Welch - I'll never forget the fall revival he did at BNC back in the day - he was quite controvesial back then. Made us think!

Love the picture and the thoughts...as always!!

Wow--does that minister to me as I go forth tomorrow to school to try again. Courage--something I never expected to need so much of to teach in a rural Bible belt school district.
I love your photos and words---they always minister to me.
Thank you. :)

If you will try again tomorrow...then I will try again.

Thank you for the thoughts on courage!

I love these short insightful posts! Have you considered publishing a devotional? You look at a photo and see beyond.
