Courage takes on many forms. We have mentioned a few of them during the past week. Take heart and have courage. It will take courage to fulfill your destiny. It will take courage to help others fulfill their destinies as well. Courage is a vital part of our lives. Living a lifestyle of courage means that you never give up. You persist without end. No matter what comes against you giving up is not an option. Courage will keep you going when you don’t feel like you can go another day. When nothing seems to be going right in your life; it is courage that will keep you going. Courage is of the heart and from the heart; we draw life from it. Like the lion from the Wizard of Oz; “Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot?
