The fruits of the spirit include love, patience, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. All of these attributes embody Christ. I know that I lack several of these attributes. The two I need the most work on seem to be patience and joy. I am very impatient and get agitated very easily. As a result, I often come home in a bad mood. My lack of joy is very evident to my husband. I can tell that this bothers him a lot. He seems to think that my unhappiness occurs when I am at home, which is not the case.
Therefore, I plan to pray that God will grant me patience for the things that are beyond my control. I also plan to make it a point to leave my stress and anxiety at work rather than bringing it home with me. I have always had issues with this area. However, Ryan makes it seem relatively easy. Maybe I can get some pointers from him. Wish me luck!
What areas do you feel that you need to work on?
