doot do-do do do, doot do-do do do…

I learned the following verse as a song that I taught kids, many, many years ago, and it has served me well.  In my own fears, and when I sensed fear or anxiety in my friends, I share this little tune.  I may be out of tune when I share it, but the words from the Word are a great reminder.
2 Timothy 1:7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
I learned it this way: “God does not give us the spirit of being afraid.  He gives us the spirit of power love and self-control.”  I think that the New Century Version.
When Jesus got into the boat he said “Fear not.  I AM!”  it usually isn’t translated that way, but that’s what it says.
Whatever you are going through today, give the great I AM control of your life.
