More about Debbie Wood:
How I love my mother, Brenda; my very first teacher in life. When I was eight, I had a desire to learn to play the piano and she began teaching me about the different notes. Then in Jr. High, my music teacher, Marvin Hill, understood the power of chords, and in one month, changed my life. Over the years, I've written different songs, both upon request, and to express the emotion I was feeling at the time. Each of these songs has a story of how it was written. (Which can also be found at www.power-plus-learning.com/debbs-music/) Each of these songs I dedicate to our loving Father in Heaven and Savior, Jesus Christ. I know They live. I know They love us perfectly and give us gifts and talents to share with others and make this world a better place. How grateful I am to Them for all I've been blessed with.
Song background:

Fear is not a fun emotion to experience. I've tried hard to not have to deal with fear.   I've done everything I could to avoid it; but when I found myself in different situations that created fear in my mind and heart, I tried to hold on to the thought, ""For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)

Those four words, "power," "love" and a "sound mind" epitomized words of strength to me; they were also words that embodied my Savior, Jesus Christ.  He's been the one sure foundation in my life; the "Pillar of Strength" I've always known I could lean on. 

It was during one of those times in 1996 that this sweet song came about. 

(Sorry for this midi .mp3 - it makes it seem like this song has no feeling, pauses or slowing of any kind. I hope to do a better recording, but for now this will give you an idea of how it sounds.)

Lyrics: 1. A pillar of strength is my Savior! Firm in His deed and His word.
We are but children, striving to follow the footsteps of our Lord.
With gentleness so majestic, He leads as we follow behind.
Giving us courage to conquer our fears; helping us truth to find.

CHORUS:
We will be a pillar of strength. Firm in the truths that we find.
"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

2. A pillar of strength is my Savior! Firm in His deed and His word.
We are but children, striving to follow the footsteps of our Lord.
A pillar of strength we're becoming, for we are all children of God.
The power's within us when we choose the right and hold to the iron rod.
