If we’re honest, most of us struggle to reflect God’s character to those we love most.
Between juggling chores and conquering our to-do-list, it’s easy to feel pressed for time and short on patience.
There are days when it seems impossible to love those around us well when the kids are fighting and the laundry is piled high.
Before long, we hit a breaking point and react out of frustration and irritation, leaving a trail of messy emotions in the aftermath.
Yet God calls us to live the
Fruit of the Spirit and to shine His
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control for the whole world to see.
So, how is it possible to live the Fruit of the Spirit in everyday life and learn to manage our emotions?
Left to our own good intentions and natural abilities, living the Fruits of the Spirit isn’t a reality for most people.
Sure, we may TRY to live out these things in our life, but on our own, we fall short from God’s commands.
However, God never intended us to stay stuck! With His help and the right tools, we CAN thrive and break free from our struggles!
As an exhausted special needs mom, I found myself struggling to minister to my family well.
My attitude was suffering and I simply was not reflecting God’s love to those around me. I grumbled through chores and groaned at the thought of doing “one more thing” for other people.
By exploring the Fruits of the Spirit, I’ve discovered that living these principles is the SECRET TO FREEDOM in everyday life.
When praying through and implementing the Fruits of the Spirit, I experienced:
A greater joy for life & those around me
A gentle spirit which calmed my home & family
Breathing room to love myself well
A stronger relationship
with my family
A deeper understanding of God's love
In my desire to live the Fruit of the Spirit, I realized it wasn't enough to wish I was this way.
There was no magic formula that would instantly transform me into a gentle and patient woman.
Truthfully, without a strategy and intentional action, it's easy to stay stuck and never conquer these issues.
It's not enough for us to try harder or do better. We need the power of the Lord to transform our lives and bring about permanent heart change.
Like any journey, implementing the right strategies and using the proper tools can make a world of difference in the final outcome and whether or not we achieve lasting change.
Without intentional steps, this can quickly become an area of defeat. (And who wants to look back in 6 months and realize you're still struggling with the same old issues?)
But the answer is easier than you think....
I've found, that in order to finally achieve lasting change, one needs a strategy for exploring, understanding, and praying the Scriptures.
The Living the Fruit of the Spirit Bible Study Kit is a practical and systematic resource to make living these principles a reality!
