Not Afraid

Not Afraid I was not built to live in fear, I will not be afraid For my God loves and holds me dear, in His image I am made My spirit holds the gifts God gave, for all the world to see Power that rose Christ from the grave, it also lives in me His love is unconditional, and lives within me, too For we are all called to forgive, and not just pray, but do! The last piece that completes it all, is that of self control Used together with the others, it makes the spirit whole Without power we are helpless, without love we are cold And we need the discipline, that our faith will always hold So there is nothing left to fear, we serve a righteous king With power, love, and discipline, we can do anything. "For God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7 (NET)
