This is a great verse. The first time I heard it, I was in a Bible Class in college. The Professor was going around the room having us introduce ourselves. When he got to me, he said this verse. Just to me... So I blushed and introduced myself. But the words stood out in my mind. I don't need to be timid or shy. His Spirit is powerful, full of love and self-control. I wrote it down and it's given me courage in a lot of circumstances.
Maybe this verse came to mind today, because tonight is my first choir rehearsal. I should take it on a card with me. I love to sing to the Lord. Another leap of faith.
