‘Give me courage’, he said.
How do we receive courage?
Is it within us all the time and we find it when faced with our fears?
Is it grown stronger by more trials and are we only able to get more of it by experiencing more hardship, however we view hardships definition, so to face more of our fears?
We ask for courage to face fear, yet only facing it brings it about.
A child fallen, cries.
A child fallen thrice, smiles, lip quivering
Knowing – this too shall pass.
