A Song for Friday

I have had this song cycling in my head yesterday and this morning.

That’s a catchy little tune to keep you focus on the right things.

Be strong and courageous each and every day.

“‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.’ Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, ‘Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their forefathers to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.'” Deuteronomy 31:6-8

Timidity Begone

I refreshed my knowledge of this great gem in Paul’s letter to Timothy this morning.

7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 1 Timothy

Wouldn’t it be great if we could just read that, and boom, we had power, love and self-discipline?  And why is it that we seem to want to favor timidity instead of boldness?

As you go about your day today, think about how different your life could be if you trusted the spirit and let go of the timid nature and grasp the power, living full of love and discipline?
