Gifts of Character – Fortitude

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Fortitude. Fortitude is about the strength of character. Our character and ability to withstand adversity grow stronger each time we endure obstacles. The foundation of our will is devotion to what we believe in and our purpose. With fortitude, we keep moving forward to accomplish our goals.

Today as I reflect on the virtue of fortitude it is a reminder that no matter how difficult it seems at this moment or big the obstacle looks, this is a time in life that I am learning a new lesson. My willpower and belief in doing what is right will carry me and make me stronger. My determination, despite uncertainty, hardship or threat is fortitude of character that only gets stronger when exercised in life.
