Heads Up!

So thankful that when God is trying to tell us something, He doesn't just tell us once. He keeps giving us a chance to hear.

Today's example? I woke-up thinking about the Fruit of the Spirit. I thought to myself, "I should write them out on pieces of paper and post them around our room, as a reminder to us as we head into the very challenging week we have ahead us." 

Well, of course, I got distracted. Didn't do it. Actually, completely forgot about it.

Just now, I checked my iGoogle Verse of the Day from Couldn't believe it! Can you believe it? Yes, it was the passage that lists the Fruit of the Spirit. Isn't that cool? Oh, it does give me pause, though. The Lord is clearly giving us a head's up for what's ahead. Oh, boy! 

Well, I'm glad we don't have to go it alone. I'm glad we can count on Him to help us live these things out. I'm glad we don't have to rely on our own supply!

"But also for this very reason,
giving all diligence,
add to your
faith virtue,
virtue knowledge,
knowledge self-control,
self-control perseverance,
perseverance godliness,
godliness brotherly kindness,
to brotherly kindness

For if these things are yours and abound,

you will be neither barren nor unfruitful
in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."
2 Peter 1:5-8

P.S. I will be back soon to finish the previous post!
