2 Timothy 1:7
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
It helps me to remember this. Being anxious or worried is so automatic to me, there are times it almost feels more natural for me to worry than to be calm. God wants me to be calm and to shine His light. I can’t do that if I am preoccupied with some small concern, worrying and afraid of what will come next. God has helped me a lot in this area, but I need to allow Him to help me more.
Lord God, When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stout-hearted. (Psalm 138:3). Amen
