GPW Minute 5/2: God's Gift of Patience!

God’s Intention for You Is the Fruit of the Spirit! Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of PATIENCE 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 How has the Lord displayed His patience toward you recently? Who else has been patient with you? Thank the Lord for His patience, and for the way He is building the fruit of the Spirit in you! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Loving Father, without Your patience toward me I would be completely lost. As I seek to serve others today, assure me of Your patience, and teach me to be patient with others. 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: Relational As I grow in God’s grace of Relational PATIENCE, I am finding joy in my UNITY in Christ with spouse, family and church.
