17 I have been deprived of peace;
I have forgotten what prosperity is.
18 So I say, "My splendor is gone
and all that I had hoped from the LORD."
19 I remember my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall.
20 I well remember them,
and my soul is downcast within me.
21 Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
James 4:17 Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins.
1 Peter 3:14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened."
There is a feeling of fear in this nation - high level politicians waving keris, Article 11 mobs, researchers are threatened for the statistics they publish, temples being torn down.
They may try to downplay it, but it's there.
But Lulu will not be frightened, for the Lord is with her, and Lulu will continue to speak up, to play her small role in doing what is right.
