Fruits of Love
January 22, 2023
Dear God, good morning. Thank you for a restful night. The book God’s promises for every day speak about, “What to do when you are frantic and stressed?” When I feel those feelings, I tend to overreact. Especially when my sisters team up against me. And it hurts my heart. I react and erupt like a volcano sometimes and this is not the way I want to live. I had to stop reading their text to me. They act like strangers to me, and it really hurts. They think I should repent to you, Jesus. Have they repented?
This isn’t the first time they ganged up on me. Lies are pouring out of their mouths. They think they know my life. They never walked in my shoes. I pray to God that they find peace in their soul, and happiness in their hearts. I need to pray more often, so my feelings won’t get hurt. The Scripture speaks about the Spirit producing the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23
I want to be humble when I write to you every morning, Jesus I wish I had self-control and patience which is my weakness. I’m learning through you, Jesus, every day how to be patient. I love this Scripture of the Spirit and how important the fruits are for us. These are your words, Jesus.
“Also, the Spirit helps us with our weaknesses. We don’t know how to pray right as we should. But the Spirit himself speaks to God for us, even begs God for us with deep feelings that words cannot explain.”
Sometimes I feel like a broken-down car, nothing is working, where is my faith? My faith only comes from you, Jesus, I don’t even know how to pray right. I only know how to write to you. I know a lot of prayers and I use them to get closer to you, Jesus.
The Bible writes, “You are already clean because of the words I have spoken to you. If you remain in me and follow my teachings…”
Jesus, I felt your presence in my bedroom when I was crying out to you to take my problems and the sadness away from my broken heart. My spirit was dead. I was spiritually deprived and needed you and you came to me with loving arms.
I felt the power of your love Jesus that beautiful morning. It felt like your warm arms were holding me up to the sky. The Bible writes that Jesus will hold you up in his right hand in his name, Jesus Christ. According to the Bible, it writes, “The Lord is good to those who hope in him, to those who seek him. It is good to wait quietly for the Lord to save.” Lamentations 3:25-26
I am going to say a prayer for my sisters and hope they will have a change of heart and find you, Jesus. Love you very much.
