For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control], I Timothy 1:7.
As we see venues open up, we may be balancing two theories: 1) Are we feeling uncomfortable resuming life's daily tasks or 2) Are we glad to resume and feel timid? The drummers show us the path: move forward.
This verse helps us stabilize our stance as we emerge from quarantines and isolation, of a sort. We can be calm, self-controlled and confident that God has us in proper position for this stage in life. Take courage!
