The definition of courage is “the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.” This the best word to describe all of the men an women who gave their lives on September 11, 2001.
One thing we will always remember about 9/11 is the courage that prevailed amidst the horror. We must continually pray for the men and women in our armed services who live out this courage daily, sacrificing their lives for us. John Chapter 15: 13 says “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friend.” I thank and pray for all of the people in our armed services and their families – that GOD keeps and protects you. With sincere gratitude and honor!
Let not September 11th be just a day of quiet remembrance, but a constant reminder of courage and the necessity to pray without ceasing. One thing lacking in most homes today is ‘courage’ to stand up for you believe in. John Maxwell wrote “If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone.” It is when you are out of your comfort zone that you become fueled by courage. 2 Samuel 10:12 “Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the LORD do what is good in His sight.” We are living in a time where men and women of GOD need to lead their families with courage. Our families and our cities need GOD’s children to rise up and become strong leaders. Hopefully, we will be inspired toward change and growth because of the examples set forth by the men and women who put their lives at stake so that we can have security. Prayerfully, we will follow the footsteps of our LORD and SAVIOR who had displayed the ultimate act of courage on the Calvary cross.
