Each one helps the other, saying to one another, “Take courage!”
Isaiah 41:6 NRSV
As you recapture the bravery to live forward in faith, you begin to seek the best part of courage: encouragement. When you share your grief with others who have experienced the death of a loved one, you recognize that you are not alone. You are encouraged by the support of community in your grief. Who or what gives you encouragement? From whom or what do you receive spiritual encouragement?
God, there is power in the encouragement of others. I am grateful for the connection of faith in you. Amen.
Fortitude and faith inspire my newfound courage.
