I bravely accomplish what is mine to do.
When I face something new or daunting, it helps to think of toddlers learning to walk. They stand, take a few steps, then fall. Then they do it again. With persistence and courage, they soon are toddling around the house. I remember I was once the child taking those first steps. That bravery born in me is still with me, and I can call it forth at any time. By trusting in my inner strength, I do whatever I am called to do with confidence. Focused on the task at hand, my courage and persistence dispel any fear. As I summon my inner strength, I find all the bravery I need. I rise to any challenge, keep growing, and keep going.
I hereby command you: Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.—Joshua 1:9
