10. Exercising the Fruits of the Spirit
Slide 10 of 10
These days, it’s so easy to get irritated and upset over things. We often react poorly to situations and people and then regret it later. Instead, try to exercise the fruits of the spirit this year - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. By pausing, thinking, and reacting in a way of love rather than irritation or anger, you will surprise your offender and feel better in the long run.
Are you still wondering what resolutions to start with in the new year? Let’s pray.
As a new year is upon us, I’m trying to figure out how to bring my life closer to you. I have so many areas that I need to work on. Please speak to my heart and let me know what the most important things are that need attention. Provide me the resources and people I need for a solid start and continue to walk with me in the new year. In your name I pray. Amen.
