GPW Minute 5/1: God's Gift of Self-Control!

God’s Intention for You Is the Fruit of the Spirit! Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of SELF-CONTROL A WORD FROM THE LORD (Read slowly, welcoming the Spirit’s gifts to you) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:23-24 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT Where would you be without the blessing of the Spirit and His many gifts of grace? Every day He shows His strength in our weakness, empowering us to make better choices than we would by our old nature! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “O Holy Spirit, when it seems that control is depleted and I run out of control, fill me with Your wisdom and strength to choose wisely. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the Holy Spirit who imparts the fruit of His presence: self-control. MARKER OF WELLBEING: Physical As I grow in God’s grace of Physical SELF-CONTROL, I am finding joy in the VITALITY that flows from practicing healthy choices.
