If we wait for all our fears to go away before we take steps, we will never make significant progress in recovery. Courage isnt the absence of fear. Courage means that we take advantage of the little strength we find within ourself, that we find llittle ways to encourage ourself, and that we stubbornly stick to Gods program for us. Courage doesnt mean being free of fear. It means finding enough strength to take the next step. The disciples were terrified when they saw Jesus walking on water. then Peter called to him, Lord, if its really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water. Jesus said yes come. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. Save me, Lord! he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. (Matthew 14:28-31). Peter gathered up enough courage to take one step and venture out into a new experience. When he got in over his head, he called out to Jesus and found the help he needed. We only need to summon the courage to take the next step. This doesnt mean that we wont be afraid or dont need help. it does mean that with Gods help, we can make it. All we need is the courage to take just one more step. Life Recovery Bible.
