Joy in the Morning

Galatians 5:22 The Living Bible
22 But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.

Another translation says it this way.

Galatians 5:22-23 The Message 
22-23 But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.

 

 

Waking to the sound of the birds chirping in our yard brings a smile to my face and thankfulness to my heart. Drinking my morning coffee I thank You, Lord, for the many blessings in my life. I have a clean slate to experience life, love, and joy, which indeed comes fresh and new each morning. Amen
