Siesta Scripture #7

I was going to do my Friday Frags... & then noticed it was the first of the month too - which is the pick for another Scripture.

Well, the past 2 days, I've been in Excel Spreadsheet/Accounting Hell so my eyes & my brain are fried... hear the sizzling?  So I'm skipping the fragments today ... focusing totally on God's word.

I still am in love with my last scripture & proud of myself that I got it, even thought it felt like 100 words long.  It wasn't - it was only 42 words... & yes, I counted.  See why I'm in accounting?  Numbers are my life.

This time though, I'm using a verse I used in my post from Wednesday.  Its a verse I'm needing to really tuck away because lately, I've had this sense of "fear" - anxiety almost - on everything. 

I'm anxious about health ...for me & for others
I'm anxious about finances
I'm anxious about my dogs
I'm anxious about my job
I'm anxious about all that's on my schedule
I'm anxious about.... well, just fill in the blank because I'm anxious about it, I'm sure...

So I'm going to remind myself especially over the next 15 days (& hopefully carry that out into the future) of this short & simple verse....

GOD DID NOT GIVE ME A SPIRIT OF FEAR,
BUT OF POWER, LOVE & SELF CONTROL...
-2 TIMOTHY 1:7

Nope.. no fear...

Power to conquer anything with His help
Love to make my heart ready for anything
Self Control to keep myself in check... mind over matter - right?

Simple.... easy verse... powerful words though...

  6. I'm doing the Siesta Scripture memorization this year also! The one I chose today is:
    And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
    Philippians 4:19 (NASB)
