I think the future tense (j'aurai enfin le courage) makes more sense because the sentence states "le jour viendra bientôt" which is in the future tense. I think if the first part of the sentence was more conditional (as in "a day might come when I will finally have the courage), then the conditional would work.

In the last sentence, would it also make sense to use the conditional as in..."mais je sais que le jour viendra bientôt où j'aurais enfin le
