“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!” Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
Same verse DearOnes, 2nd try (since I accidentally hit the trash icon y’day and lost my thoughts 😬)
I wonder what Jesus would think if He walked through a big box store or a mall today? What would he say to the ragged mom, toddler on her hip, shopping buggy filled with presents she’ll be paying for til June.
What would he say to Grumps at the back of the line, cursing the kid that ran the cart up on the back of his heels? Or, if Jesus reached for the last loaf of bread and got shoved out of the way by a hurried group of people?
He would love anyway.
He has placed you and me right where He wants us – even if that means surrounded by commercialism and preoccupied people this Christmas. Go ahead, with everyone you come in contact let Light shine from you onto them. Don’t think it odd that you get trapped in an aisle – instead, lift your heart out of the confusion long enough to hear the solution of the Almighty. You are where you are by Divine appointment. Hard or twisted hearts don’t phase the Father. Problem people don’t puzzle their Creator.
Allow God to fill you, then use you to deliver
Open to the presence of His peace.
