"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” - Deuteronomy 31:6-8
This piece represents the courage of Christ and the courage it takes for every Christian to bear their cross. Hold tight to their faith above all else, setting aside their culture, family, friends, and society to put God at the forefront of their hearts. That takes courage…and God calls us to be courageous. He never said…”Be a Pansy…I got this…you can sit this one out.”….He said, “Be strong and courageous! and know that I am with you wherever you go.” It sounds, to me, like God has a plan for you that includes your active involvement. Get involved. Be courageous! May your faith be strengthened and your walk steadfast. He is with you!
"When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise— in God, I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" - Psalm 56:3-4
