I try very hard to live my life by the fruits of the spirit but alot of times I struggle with patience and self-control. When I want something I want it now and I let myself get out of control in certain areas of my life. I need to fully surrender everything to God.
I want to produce fruit of the spirit, but sometimes I feel like a weed! I keep trusting the Spirit to guide me and strengthen me. And I’m thankful for my salvation through Jesus.
