Just Pick One

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.  Against such things there is no law"
Galatians 5:23

Nine. Nine qualities, available to us, describing the very nature of the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5 speaks of living by the Spirit as we pursue Jesus.  Taking it once step further in relationship to this Blog, living by the Spirit as believing Moms. We start from the place of love.  1 John 4:19 "We love because he first loved us."  We can know this verse from a mother's prospective.  I remember looking at my helpless 2 week old baby boy sleeping in his crib.  The Holy Spirit spoke this verse to me. As mom's we love deeply. Today I want to challenge you to mediate on the verse written above. Pick one of the Spirit's fruit to focus on today.   Whether it's patience, kindness or any one of  the nine, pick the one that is the most challenging as you walk with your children.  Think about what this fruit means.  Ask the Lord to make it perfect in you so that you can share it with  Believe He will. Not only will you bless your children, you will bless the Lord and He will in turn bless you.  I see that as a "win, win", don't you?

My prayer for you today, godly mom, is that as you choose to allow the Spirit's fruit to ripen in you, your children "will taste and see that the Lord is good." Psalm 34:8 All praise to God!

PS:  I picked Kindness.
