Courage in the Face of Challenges

If you can find courage in the face of challenges, you can achieve almost anything. Remember, courage is not being fearless, but being afraid and continuing anyway.

It is terrific to find our courage in the face of challenges.

I am courageous in the face of obstacles and challenges and that is terrific.   A while ago a Facebook friend shared with me a vlog post she had done. She asked a group of women to name something at which they excelled. These incredible women were reluctant to talk about what they thought was good about themselves.  

I was intrigued by that idea. It inspired was inspired to write about something I find terrific about myself. I invite you to spend time thinking about what is terrific about yourself and sharing it with the world. 


In this article, I am celebrating my courage. Courage is commonly defined as the quality of mind or spirit that allows a person to face challenges without fear. This is another of those qualities I possess, but know is a gift from God. As a Christian woman, I know that my God has not given me a spirit of fear. Instead, He has given me a strong heart and a strong mind. You need courage in the world today in order to get where you want to go. Fear, doubt, and procrastination keep you stuck in place and away from the goal line.

In addition to my paying jobs, I am a wife and mother. Neither of those is a job for the faint of heart. As a wife, I need courage in order to remain trusting and to stand by my husband. As a mother, I need the courage to stand between my children and whatever is foolish enough to think it can harm my babies.

Courage is the thing that makes a woman think she can start a business and make it grow. It is also courage that makes that woman pick up and start a new business if the first one does not work out as she plans. Courage is the thing that makes us realize that if plan A does not work, it is OK. We know it is OK because there are 25 other letters in the alphabet. 

If you do not have courage of your own, do not despair. If you want courage and do not have it, it is one of those fake it till you make it, with work, situations. I have employed the fake it till I make with work on a challenge on many occasions. Fake it until you make it with work means working as if what want is how things are and working to make it a reality.

One thing I learned is that most obstacles, problems, and situations do not know your courage is fake. If you suck it up, put on your big girl panties and keep faking it, you will be able to get through the situation just fine until the real courage shows up. So, the question for you this Terrific Tuesday is how are you going to find and use courage?

  1. Saidah that is a perfect example…knowing He is there makes everything less scary!

  2. I have it for others easily; defending children, doing favors out of my comfort zone…I ask God for it and he always gives it. Knowing He is always there and has my back always calms and comforts me. I feel I can do anything!

  3. You are right, there is something empowering about knowing that our God is always with us. LIke when the Bible talks about the whole armour of God. We don’t need protection for our back sides, becuse God has our back.

  4. My favorite book of the Bible regarding courage is Joshua 1. He was young but God had big plans for him. God told Joshua he would stand before the older generation and lead them but for him to be courageous. Once I came to term with the fact that God had my back, I was able to move forward in faith and not fear.
