But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
I remember a company I worked for and was blessed to do so for many years. BUT On rainy, gloomy days it seemed as if when one wore black and came in grumpy, soon the entire office was disagreeable and it was doubtful many were aware of this, nor had a good reason why. What a change a slight bit of effort to bless one another surely would have made!
If we know the truth of the following words and that they apply to each of us created in His image, AS WE ARE, why must the hate continue to defeat love? Where is peace?
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.[a]
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well. -Psalm 139:14
IF you’re dealing with difficulties, there are 3 things to focus on!
- YOU WERE CREATED IN YOUR LOVING GOD’S IMAGE
- HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU!
- PRAISE HIM ANYWAY!
Same old battle! That’s how we all feel some times . . . my body isn’t 21 anymore and some flaws cannot be fixed. Am I the only one who remembers how easy things once had been? I picked up a book on praise because I was so grumpy I couldn’t find words within me but words aloud came from my tablet all by themselves, it seemed, saying “You like Christian Music” and the first song playing was my miracle for today. I don’t know the artist nor did I know the song, nor even choose to hear, but listen I did. The LORD CHOSE IT! It spoke love to my soul assuring me I am never alone,I will be fine, He has a plan, I am loved . . . I still don’t know the song. I was too wrapped up in His love, but when I need a hug I know He will be right with me!
