Our world is full of violence and for many is a desperate world.
But, you want to live a Courageous Life. Let us help you bring it to fruition.
We all have noticed that in our world, Hope and Courage are hard to find.
Life for many people people makes no sense. Life purpose is constantly changing for them even to the point of no purpose at all.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is a “Silent Epidemic” called youth suicide sweeping America:
◦ Each day over 5,240 attempts by young people grades 7-12.
◦ The SECOND leading cause of death for college-age youth and ages 12-18 – is suicide.
◦ More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects,stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED.
◦ Four out of Five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs
Many young people have no hope for their future.
Many see their own future as: “However Bad You Think It Is, It’s Worse.” or they see life as “One hard problem behind other big problems.”
So, the question is how can you live a courageous life?
To do that you – or all of us – need to place :
1. Hope in God not in their circumstances.
2. God’s hope gives us meaning in life, hope and courage.
3. Hope in our politicians or our culture is no hope.
4. Hope without God puts all of us to shame.
To live a courageous life you / we must:
1. Embrace God’s plan for us
God’s people are called to be hopeful and courageous.
Having courage includes the willingness to live out with humility the “radical mission” God calls each one of us. His mission, guidance and power will give us hope. It will change us first and the world around us. American is not the hope of the world. Christ in us is the hope of the world! We are called in his name to be courageous, gracious and stedfast. Living this way we help the young generation to find hope and courage for themselves too.
2. Entrust our Lives to God
To be courageous we must remember that our lives are not our own. We need to live our new life daily by entrusting ourselves to God. He provides, protects, restores, confirms, strengthen, and establishes each life and the life of America. For that reason, God purposely calls us to objectives greater than us; to a life that is impossible to live without his power. By living for God the young generation will be inspired to do the same.
3. Engage the Battle
America needs courageous people to understand its reality, to speak the truth and act.
With courage we must reject both head-in-the-sand naiveté and conspiracy-mongering panic. We need each other. Courageously we can stand shoulder-to-shoulder together with God’s people.
Standing without God, without his power or his direction is foolishness. It hurts us and brings only desperation.
Almost 40% of youth suicides are associated with an identifiable standing alone lives or events, such as the death of a loved one, loss of a valued relationship, parental divorce, or sexual abuse.
We can and must bring God’s hope and courage to this desperate generation.
“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” – Plato
Do not be afraid of The light!
Do not be afraid to share The Light !
God is not trying to limit our freedom. He seeks to release us from bondage that can lead to sin and death. Romans 6:18.
He gives us freedom “If you abide in My Word, then you are truly disciples of Mine and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8: 31-32
With God there is hope to live a courageous and victorious life! Hope for all of us and for our desperate young generation.
To have hope we shall
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. ” – Albert Einstein
We have God’s power in us – to change this hopeless generation, and to help them live a victorious life.
