Ephesians 4:30


Have you heard something or thought about someone 
that caused an offensive feeling to rise up in you?

Feelings that manifested as anger, jealousy or hate? 

That's exactly what happened to me recently and it caught me off guard.

I didn't realize I was capable of such awful thoughts.

Made me sad ... Made me mad 

but

thankfully, I didn't have to stay that way.

My 
favorite teacher 
"The Holy Spirit"
came to my rescue
and showed me
what to do.


Yes, my feelings & actions were grieving him,
but he loved me enough to help me turn around.

He showed me a better way.

Philippians 4:8 
1John 4:4
2 Corinthians 12:9

It's unsettling that I'm capable of causing Him such pain
 but he's helped me realize that my choices really matter
as he's perfecting me by his grace.

Teacher,
thank you for showing me how
 to love, the way You love 
to see, the way You see 
and to guard my choices,
so 
that the
 "Fruits of Your Spirit"
can proudly be on 
display.
