Fruit Developing ~

It’s hard sometimes,
having self-control
it’s not easy to let
restraint into your soul.

But, it needn’t be,
as hard as you think
when with the Holy Spirit
your life is in sync.

It’s hard sometimes,
to be peaceful
it’s not easy to let
hope make you joyful.

But, it needn’t be,
that difficult to do
when the Holy Spirit
works inside of you.

It’s hard sometimes,
to be good and kind
it’s not easy to let
gentleness fill your mind.

But, it needn’t be,
too problematic
for, with the Holy Spirit
it becomes automatic.

It’s hard sometimes,
developing these fruits
unless the Holy Spirit . . .
establishes their roots!

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law.”

Sticky Note From God ~02.25.18~


Fear’s Pitfall ~

When you’re feeling,
anxious and fearful
and your thoughts
turn dreadful.

Remember God’s might,
will give you power
in those frightful
fearful hours.

When you feel,
you’ll lose control
before you leap
into that pitfall.

Remember God’s love,
is your perfect restraint
so over your fears
you may have constraint.

When you feel,
you’re going to lose it
remember to call . . .
upon the Holy Spirit!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:7

For God gave us a spirit not
of fear but of power and love
and self-control.

Adding To Your Faith ~

Once you have faith,
you mustn’t stop there
you need to add to it
more things with care.

To your faith add virtue,
and you will be pure
for faith and virtue
is ungodly living’s cure.

To virtue add knowledge,
it is the wisdom of life
for faith with knowledge
will cause you no strife.

To knowledge add self-control
in all the things you do
for faith and self-control
lets the light of God shine through.

To self-control add perseverance,
you will need it to faithfully run
for faith and perseverance
is the only way the race is won.

To perseverance add godliness,
in all that you say and do
then charity and brotherly kindness
will ooze right out of you!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 1:5-7

“And beside this, giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue knowledge;

And to knowledge temperance;
and to temperance patience;
and to patience godliness;

And to godliness brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness charity.

Be Patient, Be Kind ~

Be patient with others,
be kind to them too
show them the same mercy
God has shown to you.

Be not resentful,
be not quarrelsome
don’t let anger dim
the Light of the Son.

Be loving, be nice,
have self-control
let others see
the fruits of your soul.

Be not moody,
be not testy or rude
let God’s grace
out of you exude.

Be patient with others,
be forgiving too
just like Jesus . . .
has been with you!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:13

“Forbearing one another,
and forgiving one another,
if any man have a quarrel
against any: even as
Christ forgave you,
so also do ye.”

Sticky Note to God 07.01.17


Give a Fruit Basket This Year ~

fruit used with permission IBible Vereses

This year give a fruit basket,
to everyone you know . . .
fill it with Love and affection
until it begins to overflow.

Pack it with a bunch of Peace,
put into it, some tenderness
don’t forget to stock it with . . .
a whole lot of Gentleness.

Be sure to add your  Faith,
calmness and some Patience
when you mix it all together . . .
it’ll release a pleasing fragrance.

Place into it Self-Control.
pile on high, a lot of Meekness
top it off with endless Joy . . .
for a basket full of Goodness.

This year make up a fruit basket,
then pass it all around
tell others of the hope . . .
that in Jesus, you have found!

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,

Be Slow in Your Anger ~

Remain In Love

Be slow in your anger,
be slow to show your wrath
for you are called to peace
with self-control as your path.

Be not puffed up with pride,
be not filled with malice
for you’re called to be gentle
not thick-skinned and callous.

Put off all bitterness and hate,
put off the grudge inside you
for you are called to temperance
in everything you say and do.

Take off that old sinful man,
take off the old wicked nature
for you are called in His love
to bring hope for the future.

Be kind to one another,
be tenderhearted and forgiving
for Jesus is God’s example
of how we should be living!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:32
King James Version

“And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted,

forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ’s sake

hath forgiven you.”

I Wonder!

Bear Much Fruit used with permission Doorpost Verse on facebook

Sometimes I have to wonder,
if God wears a big old frown
if He mumbles and grumbles
as He drives from town to town.

If He wakes up drained and tired,
if He complains throughout the day
if He gets perturbed and frustrated
when things don’t go His way.

I wonder if He gets angry,
if He gets just plain annoyed
if He is more than a little agitated
and He feels a joyless, hopeless void.

If He needs His own space,
if He wants to be left all alone
If He wishes no one would visit Him
or call Him on the phone.

I only wonder these things . . .
because as His child ~ I should be
an imitator of His love . . .
but that’s not what others always see!
