Self-control

Those rooted and grounded in love,
gladly plant seeds in softened hearts—
Knowing the reward of self-discipline
grows and develops over a life-time.
Year after year they sow,
finally reaping harvest of buds and blooms
of the fruit of self-control.

“The fruit of the Spirit is self-control” Galatians 5:23

    • Well said, Cindy. So grateful this is the fruit of the Spirit in us…Christ working in us in those areas, as we surrender and believe. He doesn’t give up on us, does He? Thanks for taking time to share.

  6. Beautiful, Glenda. As always. Self-control isn’t a natural fruit for me, I’m afraid!

    • Nor for me Susan. It takes the super-natural work of the Holy Spirit. I’m so grateful He doesn’t give up on us and when we fail to get it right, we get lots of opportunities to rely on Him to complete the work He’s started.
      Thanks for stopping by!
