Share the Love ~ October

Love and Selfcontrol Joyce Myer Center of His Wheel

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23).

I thought about this quote while reading the scripture. After thinking about it, I have to agree with Joyce Myer. It would be hard to practice the rest without the first and last one. 🙂

What say you?

Hope you enjoy October’s Share the Love.

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

Good morning, dearest reader. This month’s theme has been joy! Do you have joy, today? If not, I pray your heart be filled with gladness, your mind with peace, your mouth with singing, and your soul with praises to our God. Truly, the joy of the Lord is our strength. If we have His joy, we have the strength to face the days ahead.

James instructs us to count it all joy (James 1:2) when our faith is tested. Why? Because the testing of our faith produces patience. And when patience’s work is complete we will lack nothing.

So, bask in His love, rest in His grace, and power up with His joy!

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy the posts I’ve shared. I did!
