2 Timothy 1:7

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline."NIV


This is my second scripture memory verse for the year. I recently heard this translation: "For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love and of a sound mind." I am not sure what translation this is, but I just love it. Praise God for this. In a world that is full of chaos and confusion we can hold onto this truth from our creator.



Last weekend, I attended a Lysa Terkeurst conference with my bible study group. She taught on this verse, and it was really good. The bible study that we did before her conference was What Happens When Women Say Yes To God.

Thank you Jesus for giving me a spirit of power, of love, and a sound mind. Lord, help me to use these three things to bring you glory, and to advance your kingdom. You don't give us these things so that we can store them away in our hearts for us to keep all to ourselves. I don't want to waste anything that you give me.
