Good Morning Friends ~

The one fruit I am beginning to know so well is the fruit of patience ~ These past few week have truly made me realize how being patient has brought me to a place of peace.

Peace is a good thing,  when you have peace you become calm,  becoming calm makes for a healthy body which I am truly hoping for.

Whatever the outcome I feel at peace.   Because of the fruit of patience.

~Thank you Holy Spirit ~

What Does ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ Mean?

When Christians speak of the work of the “Holy Spirit”, they are speaking about the operations of the Spirit of God in the material world we live in, and within us. But God the Holy Spirit isn’t here just to hang out, or to do a miracle for sport, or bliss someone out for an hour or so. The Spirit is there to cause things to happen in peoples’ lives that bring them more in tune with God’s purposes on earth (and beyond). Words like ‘result‘ or ‘outgrowth‘ help us little to envision this. When the Spirit starts changing someone, it shows as a growth in character, a change in their way of life that is good for the people they live among. They start actually being the person of love God calls us to be. This change in character and way of life breeds ‘fruit of the Spirit’, like the fruit grown by a tree can feed people and wildlife, and fuel the next generations. From ancient times to today, abundant fruit from an orchard is seen as cause for hope and celebration. Abundant spiritual fruit also breeds hope and is well worth celebrating.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Until next time ~

Much love,
