Week 2: 12-18 September 2021

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 

2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)

“Secure in God’s love, I will not surrender my self-worth to the opinions and judgments of others.  When I am rejected, I will not retaliate; when I am hurt, I will allow God’s love to heal me. And knowing the pain of rejection, I will seek to love those who suffer from its anguish.” Lloyd Ogilvie
