Of Power And Love

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  2 Timothy 1:7

God gives us so much.

Lord,  thank You for supplying us with exactly what we’ll need today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I give you My Spirit
of power and love

and a sound mind
to think clearly from

making sure you have everything
you need for this day

to meet the challenges
that come your way.



  1. Mmmm, nice one, Sis Deb!! I’m gonna cling to that, and just curl up and Rest in His arms! Praying for His overflowing blessings on your day, sweet Sis–love and power (Love’s Power) to assist you with every task. And lots of love from me, your Caddo sis

  2. What a blessed little word of encouragement, Debbie. I’ve just been reading of religious people crawling on bloodied knees towards a religious statue, believing they’re appeasing an angry God. If only they knew … talk about a spirit of fear! God bless you heaps.

  3. Beautiful, Debbie! I’m so glad that you mentioned the sound mind. Too many people do things without thinking them through, and then blame God for the consequences. He gave us the mind and His Spirit so we can make good decisions in our lives. 🙂

  4. Amen the Lord does give us so much… reminds me of

    Ps 40:5 (KJV) “Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.”

    Lord bless!

  5. I love the verse and rhyme, Deb.
    May you be greatly empowered today!

  6. A lovely poem, as always. I truly enjoy God’s imprint on your heart. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Have a blessed day!

  7. one of my favorite verses Debbie – if I only lived it as well as I know it. NO timidity – but power balanced by a sound mind and love. And your poem was perfect as usual. God bless you my friend! (ps I had to enter a wrong email address because or wordpress .com I’m att.net – not aol.com 🙂

  8. He’s got you covered, Sis Caddo Delight! I LOVE how He is showing you all about having a sound mind as you minister to some who do not. Thank you so much for your prayers and love! ((Oh Love’s Power sounds like poem material for you!) God bless you and sending my love to you too!

  9. What you described sounds sad to me! Yes, that’s something that a spirit of fear would have us doing. So thankful that He gives us so much more! God bless you, Roger, as He anoints you and ministers through you, in power, love and a sound mind!

  10. What a comfort to know that He gives us a sound mind to think with, to make those good decisions with. God just thinks of everything! 🙂 God bless you Ted, as He blesses others through you today!

  11. Love that Psalm 40:5 verse, Pastor Rob! Thank you for adding that! There is no end to what all He does for us and supplies us with! God bless you as He gives you what you need today!

  12. Thank you , Lady D, for your prayers and encouragement! God did indeed power us through our day! God bless you and your sound mind!!

  13. Oh Oh . .. I love that Philippians verse with this too! Thank you, Tahlitha! You have such a great mind, heart and soul for Jesus, by Jesus! 🙂 God bless you with the power of His love today!

  14. Craig . . so good to see you and it was YOU I thought of . ..in that bar, surrounded by those guys and gals who were throwing out statements and comments. Now that was a great example of God giving you His spirit of power and love and a sound mind!!! 🙂
    God bless you friend! Thinking of you and praying too!

  15. His gifts are limitless, and just so that we know how to use them, and not waste the opportunities He gives us, He adds a sound mind.

    What an amazing God! He has given us EVERYTHING we need to live victorious, Christ-exalting lives for Him.

  16. That is it, Mentor Angela . . He has given us everything we need!! That just makes me so excited and really ends any excuses I might come up with for not doing what He wants me to do. 🙂
    God bless you as you praise your amazing God! love and prayers!

  17. Thank you sister Debbie; for your wonderful and encouraging words… Blessings.. Bro pat… 🙂

  18. God bless you, Bro Pat, as you encourage us each day in Jesus, to go forth with a sound mind, full of His power and love!

  19. Mmm…just enough for this day. Thank you, Lord!

  20. What a great way of looking at it, Jeff! I’m going to be gone this weekend , but hope to see what you have been up to and posting on, when I get back! God bless you with everything you need today!

  21. Thank you, Deb

    “Lord, thank You for supplying us with exactly what we’ll need today.”

    I don’t always have a sense of what I need, but He knows. And not only does He know, He supplies it too!

    Great post, Deb!


  22. What a great point, Ann full of grace and song . .I don’t always know what I really need either! So thankful with you that HE knows and supplies it too! 🙂 God bless you as He is your everything today!

  23. Pray for me that I might be a good steward of all that I have been given.


  24. I desire to be a good steward of what He’s given me as well!!! Thank you for sharing that prayer with us, so we can pray too! God bless you with His power and love and a sound mind today! love you!

  25. oops I am getting behind! This word Deb is what God has been teaching me and revealing in a fresh way, to live each day in light of His vast resources, not in light of my own limitations. Such a great insight and poem because when we know that He has what we need for today we are released to walk in freedom and in power. Muchly blessings xx

  26. Love you , sweet Aimee, and what God is revealing to you. Praying that I walk in what He provides for me each day and not in the limitations that I see in myself. God bless you muchly and your precious family too! You are a blessing, always!
