Some thoughts that are, to me, profound... as I pondered them today... It's like taking a bite out of scripture and digesting it!
#1 - I don't need to spend countless hours researching how to exhibit and actively practice the fruits of the spirit. I simply need to let God take over in my life and I will naturally blossom in these ways.
Galatians 5: 22-23
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control..."
#2 - Sometimes mid-day I am exhausted and say a little prayer "God please give me some energy to complete this day." Today I thought to myself... maybe I should pray for strength to exercise self-discipline which would in turn cause me exercise and to eat and drink foods that are healthful and thus would naturally give me energy. I can't believe it's taken me this long to figure this one out!
