Jan. 24, 2016 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
 — Raymond Lindqui

Coeur is the French word for “heart.” When we act with courage, we act from our hearts, not our heads alone. We boldly do what feels right. We may be scared if we’re going against the grain, but we have confidence and faith supporting our actions.

Being courageous does not require going into battle — we do not have to be saving someone’s life. It takes a lot of courage just to be honest with ourselves and others, to decide to change behaviors, and to leave destructive relationships.

Today I will pray for courage.
