It’s not very often that we are blessed with opportunity to be uplifted by gifted and inspiring writers who find just the right words to say to motivate and encourage us when we need it the most.  
This new series is based on inspiring words written by Max Lucado and are noted in the book God’s Inspirational Promise Book. Max shares with various areas that we all can encouraged by. I hope that you enjoy his message on courage.
Could you use some courage? Are you backing down more than you are standing up? Jesus scattered the butterflies out of the stomachs of his nervous disciples…

We need to remember that the disciples were common men given a compelling task. Before they were the stained-glass saints in the windows of cathedrals, they were somebody’s next-door-neighbor trying to make a living and raise a family. They weren’t cut from theological cloth or raised on supernatural milk. But they were an ounce more devoted than they were afraid and, as a result, did some extraordinary things.
Earthly fears are no fears at all. Answer the big question of eternity, and the little questions of life fall into perspective.
