What People See

Galatians 5:22-23 “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.”

What do people see when they look at me?  That’s the real practical application of this passage.  Lord, I want people to see a woman who is loving toward people; not anxious or nervous or worrying but peaceful.  I want people to see a woman who is patient rather than hurried or distracted; kind rather than selfish; good rather than mean or spiteful; faithful rather than self-seeking.  I want people to see a woman who is gentle, not harsh, cynical or sarcastic; self-controlled rather than self-indulgent, greedy, or impulsive.  That’s the woman I want to be, Lord.  Oh, Father, I need you so much!  I can’t do this in my own strength.

Thank you for giving the Holy Spirit to live in me, so that I can be the woman You want me to be.  What a faithful and glorious God You are!

I want to know what you think!
