In a demanding world of insensitivity, burdensome are the masses. In weakness, they seek strength, but to no avail. Such is the human mind, if there is weakness, instinctively, strength is viewed as the means of overcoming the many toils of life and its burden. Nevertheless, if it takes the strength of the one who is weak to overcome his weakness; how then is he in a state of weakness?
The rain cannot stop falling for the sake of one individual to stay dry from the elements, but with sheltering, the individual will experience the storm without condensation.
So then, in the times of weakness, courage is the shelter through the path of weariness. Though the word courage and strength bare similarities. However, the strength to overcome through self-willed, is to achieve victory by force, of which the result is undoubtedly a disappointment.
On the contrary, courage is the quality of mind which enables men to encounter danger and difficulties with firmness, without fear or depression. Courage is to be enabled, to enable is to supply with the means. He or she who is enabled to be courageous, is only as effective as the source from which they are enabled.
Greater than men and all the burdens, is God. If God is the enabler, then courage is the strength to go through the weariness of life.
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalms 27:14)
Is failure acceptable without waiting, than waiting to succeed?
