FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
Let me share one of my most precious testimonies that I know to be true. Getting a second chance in this first life is outstanding! With the assured belief system that God has allowed me to have in place in my life now is based on a grounded understanding of the following knowledge:
The True and Living God, creator of all things Loves his creation!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Daily we are faced with the Worldly triumphs, Disasters, and overall Confusion. But our Father has given us many tools to succeed and build a positive and loving environment.
The Fruit of the Spirit tool is a Powerful tool and asset to have and hold onto.
Galatians 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
This Power tool is Awesome! If used correctly it allows for hearts to be changed, mountains to be moved, physical healing, spiritual growth, self-care, mental stability, and a host of all other positive improvements.
How I know this to be true! I am living it now…..the Right God, Best Friends and New True family members. All of this obtained from the best Fruit available to man. Our God is wonderful!
Allow me to please share a little story about how I began my journey back to God.
One morning I was sitting on the train platform on my way to the corporate 9 to 5 job that the Lord allowed me to have; depressed, anger, lost and truly tired of the rat race. I encountered an older woman who began to talk to me, asking basic general questions about train arrival, downtown Chicago location landmarks and sharing her planned activities for the day. I’m sure she could see the destressed state of mind written all over me. This elderly woman was from Atlanta GA, and she came to Chicago to visit her daughter; she was on her way to the city for a hair appointment. The significance of this trip was that she was taking it by herself on public transportation in a city that she wasn’t familiar with,
We talked briefly with one another before the train arrived. As the train was approaching, she said to me. You need to call God! Her next statement was, do you know his number? Of course, I said no. Her response was one statement.
“Jeremiah 33: 3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
We boarded the train and went our separate way. I meditated on the scripture for the entire ride. And just as she instructed I did just that by looking up at the sky and asking God to help me to understand what my life was all about.
The moral and beauty of this story for me is that God has Caller ID, He always answers, and he is
delighted to hear from me.
Skipping ahead, shortly thereafter my call to God I was introduced to the Israel of God here in the Chicagoland area. From this I was introduced to Preacherhead Ministries. The studying of this Word and the life events that God has put me through within the last thirteen years has been, exciting, painful, difficult, encouraging and healing. Our God’s purging process is no punk.
Today, I can say that because of this Word I’m so much better! The best husband that I have ever known is that of Jesus Christ. Because of his training and Love I understand and practice the Fruit of the Spirits in my daily walk. It has also helped me to understand with greater depth this scripture:
1 John 3:11 “For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.”
Love was the true missing piece of the puzzle for me, giving and receiving of it. Currently within my life there is a level of happiness, peace, and comfort that I have never known. It allows for me to take on my battles head on with understanding. The strength that God has allowed me to have, has been Phenomenal!
Thank you for your time today Beautiful Sisters in Christ!
Peaceful & Blessed day in the mighty name of Jesus!
