Courage Is...

Monday, October 10, 2011 by Demetria Murdock |

What does it mean to live a courageous life?  It is hard to believe that it is almost been a year since I decided to take a leap and leave my safety net to begin living out my life purpose.  What an adventure it has been!  It took a lot of courage and prayer to make that move a year ago. But it has taken even more courage and audacious faith to stick to God's plan for my life. 

With the recent passing of Apple's Steve Jobs, many people are reflecting on the courageous life that he lead.  One of his quotes I have seen over the last few days that is so powerful says,

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs

For me, Demetria, living a courageous life is being an example to our kids in everything that I do!  Courage is having the guts to leave the familiar security of Corporate America and go from a computer programmer analyst to a domestic engineer/Mompreneur without worrying about what people thought.  Courage is being serious about following my God-given passions & dreams.  Courage is trusting God when my 4 year old son meet Jesus for the first time after losing his battle with Liver Cancer.   

Are you living a courageous life? 

Here a sample of the theme song from the movie Courageous originally done by Casting Crowns that J-me Brown and I did recently while hanging out in The Blue Room studio at our church Christ Deliverance Church.  Nothing fancy just loved the song and the message.
