Courage & Grace is a formidable mixture!

Grace is an ability to give as well as receive and be thankful. Grace is what picks me up and lifts my wings high above and I fly! Grace always conquers! Be graceful in everything, in anger, in sadness, in joy, in kindness, in unkindness, retain grace within you! Sorrow surrenders it's crown to a throne called grace. Our worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace, and your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace. Extraordinary afflictions are not always the punishment of extraordinary sins, but sometimes the trial of extraordinary graces. Grace is when God is a source of wholeness, which makes up for your failings. Your failings hurt you and others & God's grace to you is that your brokenness is not the final word, it's that God makes beautiful things out of even your own failings & struggles. God makes all things new.

The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you. Grace is the light or breeze that takes you from that isolated place to a place where you belong, to a place where your presence is valued & celebrated, to a place where you are loved & respected, to a place where you are accepted just the way you are. When grace moves in, guilt moves out. You only need to believe that you are part of something greater than you know. The grace of God is very great, strong & mighty. It hears, leads, drives, works, changes and let's itself be distinctly felt & experienced. It may be hidden, but it's works are evident. Personal transformation is many times invisible. It is his grace that conquers a multitude of flaws and in that grace, there is only favour. Favour is not achieved, favour is received.  Grace is the seed of all goodness. The sweetness of grace and freedom, comes hand in hand with the uncomfortable, bitter-rawness of honest emotions and grief. Live your life courageously, keep doing what is right, God notices your efforts and God will answer everyone who did you wrong, on your behalf, just keep working and wait for your day, be sure of the fact that your day will come. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.

Be stubborn in yourself that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. Unfold your own myth. Scared is what you are feeling. Brave is what you are doing. Live a life you are proud of. Life does not look back, don't take time for granted, it will slip away before you even realise. I personally feel the presence of God in every moment of my life and that gives me a special power. Some people think holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it. Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake. Don't let the opinion of others blind your own view. Do what you believe in. Courage, kindness, friendship, character, these are the qualities that define us as human beings and propel us on occasion to greatness. Be brave to live from your heart.
