Hope That Doesn't Disappoint



The Fruit of the Spirit is Self-control

Those rooted and grounded in love

Glad-ly 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

Linking up with friends at Six-Word Friday

  1. I’m so GLAD you posted this. Thanks!


  2. Glad-ly – cute! 🙂


  3. “Year after year they sow, FINALLY …” Ha, ha–yes–still sowing and still believing for the harvest (finally) in some areas 🙂 Thanks for this. Blessings and hugs to you, Glenda.


    • 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.


  4. This is the beautiful confirmation as I’,m praying for God to stir up the fruit within . . . I stopped down at VBS to hear the children singing this morning . . . you guessed it – fruit of the spirit. Love this, Glenda!


  5. I like this. I especially like the part about those who wait for it will reap the rewards of self-control.


  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!
