January’s Virtue – Courage

Making changes in our lives requires a large amount of strength as we are adding an element of uncertainty to what we are used to on day-to-day basis.  The virtue of courage helps us to take the initiative to make changes in our lives and or to accept changes brought before us.  Courage can often lead us to a spiritual awakening and or enlightenment.  Courage can allow you to shed old patterns, especially those patterns that are harmful to your body or soul.  This virtue allows you to reach new levels of being.  No matter who you are, no matter what has already happened to you, no matter what you have done, it is still possible to have a “new beginning.”

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you.  He will not leave you nor forsake you.” –Deuteronomy 31:6
