A Dash of Courage!
Written By Troy Dickens

Monday night Elaine gave me an assignment. She asked me to help Amy with her homework. That’s usually Elaine’s job.

I got Amy’s homework out and we got started. Amy’s assignment was spelling. We worked our way through her list of words that she was practicing how to write when we came to the word, DASH.

I asked her, “Do you know what that word means?” She put her thumb and pointer finger together and said, “A dash of courage and a little bit of try!” I was surprised! I had never heard that phrase before. I asked her where she learned that? She went on to sing a little song with those words. She had learned it at school. She was so cute! (If I may say so!).

“A dash of courage and a little bit of try!” I didn’t know how much I would need those words a couple days later.

Wednesday, I went to the Eye Doctor’s to have some tests done. The doctor informed me that I had some mild vision loss resulting from a disease called Glaucoma.

Glaucoma! I felt like I’d been hit by a brick! Fortunately, Glaucoma is treatable and the doctor caught it early.

On my way home, I started imagining the worst. All the “What ifs?” Then Amy’s Song came to me. “A dash of courage and a little be of try.” Just the medicine I needed!

Joshua 1:9 says “Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
I don’t know what my future holds, none of us do, but I am glad I know who holds my future. I’m going to trust Him. He will see me through.

It’s still all about Him,
Troy
