Learning of Captain Croziers fight for his crew & watching the footage of his crew cheering him as he walked the plank moved me deeply. What he did took real courage. He has now tested positive for Covid19. I am wishing him fair winds on his journey, with the hopes of bigger things to come.

Welcome back to the Sacred Letters of Supernatural. This week’s theme is courage and we’re taking a look at the episode “Wendigo.” Bravery, or courage, may seem like an obvious choice for a theme–Sam and Dean put their lives at risk and battle monsters every episode–but I want to focus on the less obvious acts of bravery shown in this particular episode. I think those might hold a lot of value for application to our personal lives. After all, none of us are hunting supernatural creatures on the daily.
Breathe into your fear and do the thing anyways.
Con fiducia, responsabilità e coraggio, raccogliamo questa straordinaria occasione. “Il nostro mondo ha disperatamente bisogno di un nuovo Rinascimento, che spinga l'umanità a dare il meglio proprio quando la posta in gioco è più alta. Agire, non esitare. Venirsi incontro, non tirarsi indietro. Creare e celebrare la bellezza, non solo per se stessa ma per il bene dell'umanità”.

“Courage is what love looks like when tested by the simple everyday necessities of being alive. Courage is the measure of our heartfelt participation with life, with another, with a community, a work; a future. To be courageous is not necessarily to go anywhere or do anything except to make conscious those things we already feel deeply and then to live through the unending vulnerabilities of those consequences. To be courageous is to seat our feelings deeply in the body and in the world: to live up to and into the necessities of relationships that often already exist, with things we find we already care deeply about: with a person, a future, a possibility in society, or with an unknown that begs us on and always has begged us on.”
“Courage, inspires communities: the courage of an example — for courage is as contagious as fear.”
Even if nothing makes sense.
Even when everything feels out of control.
Even if you don’t understand.
Even when the most unexpected thing happens.
Even when God seems silent and so far away.
Trust. Pray. Worship. Praise the Father. Obey.
Go to battle for your Faith.
The enemy’s voice starts with a whisper and grows louder and louder as you continue to listen and doubt. Before you know it, it’s the only thing you can hear, believe, and feel.
FIGHT for your FAITH.
Go back to the still small voice. Return to your first Love. Walk hand in hand with the Father. Don’t let your heart grow bitter with unbelief. There’s POWER in PRAYER. There’s POWER in the BLOOD of JESUS and His unconditional LOVE.
Don’t grow complacent. We are fighting a spiritual WAR. The enemy will BOW at the name of JESUS CHRIST.
Jesus has the victory! He has always had the victory and He always will!! He is fighting for you. He has your back, He’s on your side, He has not left you! He will NEVER leave you!
The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. Deuteronomy 28:7
Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 30:41
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Exodus 14:14

I still think that’s appalling. If you invest your time and love into someone, they should have the decency to sit down and talk to you. If things aren’t working out just appreciate what you’ve had and focus on the fact that you’re one step closer to the person you should be with.
“We are daughters of the great
and we have wills and courage of our own.
Therefore, do not bend.
Sink your roots into the rock and face the wind,
though it blow away all your leaves”
