The Spirit of Power ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ for-god-has-not-given-us-a-spirit-of-fear
God has not given us,
 a spirit of fear . . .
 but, one of His power
 to keep us, to Him near.
No worry shall cause,
 us to tremble or shake
 not even the enemy
 can author us to faint.
God has not given us,
 a spirit of neglect . . .
 but, one of His love
 with regard and respect.
We shall speak the truth,
 for in God we do trust
 we care about others
 because, He first loved us.
God has not given us,
 a spirit of trepidation . . .
 but, of a sound mind
 not filled with irritation.
We are full of His peace,
 there’s a calm deep inside
 our tranquilly declares . . .
 His spirit is our guide.
God has given us a spirit,
 not full of dread or fear . . .
 but of power, love and peace
 hope, gladness and good cheer!

    I love this poem very much. I would like to use it in our forthcoming Worship service as the theme is God’s power. Hope that’s OK
