For the Spirit God gave us
does not make us timid,
but gives us power,
love and self-discipline.
1 Timothy 1:7
I do not possess any of these attributes on my own. I lean on the God who made me want Him to receive my portion for the day. It is a daily thing...asking for God's help. When I don't, I suffer and miss the opportunities He provides.
Lord, I need strength today, the power of the Spirit to go about the duties of the day.
Lord, I need your kind of love, the love that is unselfish.
Lord, I need self-discipline because "self" is so weak.
I know you are the provider and I wait for your gifts. Thank you for being there for me.
