others around us. As I reflect on this season in my own life, each week I'm reminded of the fruits God has blessed us with, and am always humbled by the encouragement to grow into and nurture each fruit.
This week, I've been challenged by the fruit of patience. When you are so eagerly awaiting something, do you find it easy to become impatient? Maybe you're looking forward to a visit from someone special, an upcoming vacation, a yummy meal … it could be anything. For me, a lot of changes are on the horizon, some very exciting, some bittersweet, but at the end of the day, I know I can anticipate great joy, peace, and love in this season. When I find myself feeling impatient in this season, I pray for wisdom, for peace, for patience … and I pray that I can extend those to the people around me.
My encouragement for all of us this week is to pick a fruit, any one of them, and reflect on who has exemplified that fruit or how you've experienced that fruit in your life … then think about a way you can spread it to others!
In His Name, Kierstie
