I will not be Yellow!
by Lisa Hendricks

Yellow, the color of cowards? The color yellow, today reminds me of being AFRAID.

Afraid to press on and do the will of God.
Afraid of what people will think of me.
Afraid to step out on faith and answer God's call on my life.
Afraid to stand up for Who I believe in and What I stand for.
Afraid to be different than the world and all the sin that seems so pleasurable.
Afraid to lose friends, family, posessions, and other things that I once thought were so much more important than God.
Afraid to trust in someone I can't see or touch.
Afraid to tell others about the amazing Love that only comes from the Father.
Afraid of being laughed at for feeling real heartfelt emotion during a church service when I feel the Holy Presence of the Lord.
Afraid to let the healing tears flow as God speaks to my spirit.
Afraid to hold my hands high to the Heavens to Glorify my Savior.
Afraid to follow Christ wherever He leads, whatever road, no matter how hard, or how dark and lonely it may seem.
Afraid to put God first and let other things take second, in order to grow in His love and knowledge.
Afraid to have faith and not try to fix things on my own.

I will not be afraid, I will not be yellow!!

For such a long time I have been the true color of yellow, I have been yellow through and through.
I have been so afraid of so many things. But I want to be white as snow. I want to be pure as gold.
And for that to happen I must not be afraid. I must follow Jesus! Daily and completely!

Yellow may be the color of cowards, but it is not the color of Christians!

Good thoughts. This is almost a poem!
Just a reminder: don't put your name on your entry next time

I wonder how yellow ended up as symbolic of cowards.

Also, besides leaving out your name, omit the title with the story. I have noticed that it does add to the word count.
