Hi everyone, I’ve been MIA, super busy with life, but I know that’s no excuse because so is everyone around me. I’ve been putting off posting because I’m in a rut. I’m having writer’s block for some reason… I know, I know, still not an excuse, but it’s the truth. Today I wanted to share with you a verse that has been really close to my heart since the beginning of the month when it was mentioned at Sunday service. Lately I’ve been struggling a lot with patience with the kids, and my husband. I’ve been explosive and just wanting to be alone. There’s so much that happens in my day that when the clock hits 7pm, I feel exhausted. AMIRIGHT? So when I heard this verse 2 Sundays ago, it resonated with me and I knew that the Lord was speaking to me directly. He knows me, and feeds me the spiritual food that I need. I also remembered it from a song that the kids really like. Here it is…
Galatians 5:22-23 – New Living Translation (NLT)
“22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things”
Can I get an AMEN?! This is what I’m pursuing this month. I need to be more joyful of my life. I have been blessed with a beautiful family, a job, a place to call home. Food on the table everyday. I have been given salvation thanks to Jesus Christ and should have peace because of it. Patience – Now this is where it gets hard…. This is the one that I need to really instill in my life. Not only because I want to be a patient being, but also because my children are watching everything I do. I’m guiding them when it comes to dealing with stress and feeling overwhelmed.. So I need to remember that. I am publicly sharing this because I want to make myself accountable. This verse is so powerful. Although the Holy Spirit is within me, I am not perfect and have so much to work on. But because I have the Holy Spirit within me, I know I will be spiritually supported through this month and life in general. Thank you God for showing me this verse on that day and for enlightening my month with your Truth, as you always do.
And thank you ladies for stopping by, I hope you all are encouraged enough to work on areas in your life that might be suffering at this time.
