Inspiration, Poetry

Inspiring Hope Poetry Collection- Courage!

Many years ago, before marriage and the kids, I used to write poetry. They were words that flowed from my heart, my life, my questions, my thoughts, my environment, my imagination, my relationship with God and the people in my life. And then I took a long break.

This year I am hoping to get back to writing poetry as the words come to heart. Perhaps those words will bless a soul and inspire hope and faith in someone’s heart.

Inspiring Hope Poetry Collection – Courage!

“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.

A dare to be different.
A Call to do the impossible.
An awakening of your inner self.

Not the absence of fear.
Not the unwillingness to try.
Not to trust in your own wisdom.

The triumph over fear.
The willingness to try in your helplessness.
The ability to choose God’s wisdom.

Walking on stormy waters.
Taking on the giants.
Doing it afraid.

David before Goliath.
Moses before the Red Sea.
Esther before the King.

A slingshot and a stone.
A shepherd’s staff.
A Call to fast and pray.

The impossible becomes possible.
Miracles happen.
Favor opens doors.

The strength of the spirit.
Grace under pressure and doubt.
Wings that unfold when you jump.

Doing the right thing.
Doing the unpopular thing.
Doing what you are afraid to do.

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point. – C. S. Lewis
