THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STRENGTH AND COURAGE

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STRENGTH AND COURAGE

 

It takes strength to be firm.
It takes courage to be gentle.

 

It takes strength to stand guard.
It takes courage to let down your guard.

 

It takes strength to conquer
It takes courage to surrender.

 

It takes strength to be certain.
It takes courage to have doubt.

 

It takes strength to fit in.
It takes courage to stand out.

 

It takes strength to feel a friend’s pain.
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

 

It takes strength to hide feelings.
It takes courage to show them.

 

It takes strength to endure abuse.
It takes courage to stop it.

 

It takes strength to stand alone.
It takes courage to lean on another.

 

It takes strength to love.
It takes courage to be loved.

 

It takes strength to survive.
It takes courage to live.

 

“….as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you.  Be strong and of good courage….” (Joshua 1:5b-6a)

    Weakness is real. We have to fake strength and if we do it consistently we’re able to realize faking strength isn’t all that difficult. But doing it consistently requires courage. Author not anonymous.
