Faithful Blogging Prompt #5: Life Verse

What is your life verse and why? In case you don’t know, a life verse is a particular verse in the Bible that holds a significant meaning to you, whether it defines your life, gives you inspiration, or just speaks to you.

2 Timothy 1:7 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

This verse means a great deal to me. Heavenly Father gave it to me during an extremely upsetting weekend several years ago. I was very scared and hurting. I claimed it, I prayed it, I believed it. Almost constantly I prayed claiming this freedom from fear. It was granted. There are many things that I have been afraid of over the course of my life and most of those fears are gone. Driving in the mountains is going to take some more praying. :)

I've been bad and haven't been as faithful to my prayer life and Bible reading as I should be. Another event shook the foundations of my life and faith, and left me with a lot of questions. But, I am still holding on.

I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know Who holds tomorrow and He can remove all fear.
