You know the correct steps to take. Why then do you not take them? Fear? Laziness? Cowardice? If you do not have `fortitude – courage of heart and mind – what then shall become of your life? For what is the matter of life? What is the reason for being? Without fortitude, you cannot truly love. You cannot love yourself, and you cannot love others. For love is more than just a feeling. It is an action, with a mission of rightness and goodness. It is mercy. It is patience. It is kindness. All of these things take courage. And time. And trust in Me. Hope in the future. Daily choose how you will direct your feet. Daily examine your conscience. Decide to change what you can – in yourself and in your environment. Be an example, a shining star. Point to Me in all things.
