Galatians 5:22,23 "The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. Against such things there is no law."
Oh Lord, it's so hard to manage and master our emotions. The thing that trips us up is not our actions, but our reactions letting our emotions take control instead of self control. Lord all of us want the loving characteristics in these verses. We would love to be more loving, patient and kind, but our reactions often catch us off guard and we display just the opposite. Anger, anxiety, frustration, etc.
Father, today give us a spirit of resolve that we will practice love, practice joy, practice peace and patience. You have given us everything we need in Your Word and through the Holy Spirit living in us to accomplish this.
You have given us the key......You are the Vine, we are the branches....if we remain in You and You remain in us...the fruit of the Spirt will be the benefit and it will bless and nourish us and those around us. Thank You for being our Source. I love You. Amen.
