The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
“I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve.” Jeremiah 17:9-10
Paul said it best in Galatians 5:22, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
This is how those who follow Christ are to live out our lives. Loving each other, being filled with joy as happiness is circumstantial, making sure to live with peace in our heart. Getting through the day while exhibiting patience and extending kindness to strangers.
Be gentle in Spirit and exercise self-control during situations that test our faith. Remember that anxiety is just a faith battle, so be courageous and inspired.
