Be courageous, I am here, and have no fear
by Joseph Yu
'Be courageous, I am here, and have no fear' says the Lord ... from the November 10, 2019 Sunday sermon I remembered.
"Oh dear, snow is here. I am not ready yet, hang in there ...," said the dragon. I will tell it: Be courageous, I am here, and have no fear. You are on solid ground and protected by trees and shrubs.
Never noticed the 'emotion' on this dragon's face as it clings onto a band of bamboos of the water fountain which we bought from a local concrete sculpture in Oakville some 20 years ago. Still clinging strong. 😊👍
In my daily walk with the Lord in living and working, I 'cling on' to the words of the Lord from Bible verses or worship song lyrics. In facing challenges or in a valley in my walk, be courageous, for the Lord is with me, and have no fear. Peace and calmness will take over so I can move on.
Psalm 56:3-4 When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
