Of all the gifts that God has given you,
Not one of them involves a sense of fear
Of demons or men and all the dread they brew
Dissuading you the work of God so clear.
Instead, you’re gifted with a holy power,
The very Spirit God gave Jesus Christ,
So strengthened to resist the evil hour,
To do what’s right with God, His will sufficed.
The gift of love is planted in your soul
To give to God and Jesus and to man.
He’s given you this gift, a mind that’s whole
With clarity to understand His plan.
You have no room for angst, no time for doubt;
Use all the gifts God gave you – be devout.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
My favourite VERSE is 2 Timothy 1:6 which says to me – stir it up!
