There is so much on mine “have to do” list and also my expectations are high. Ns envision exactly what I must be, need to do, in order to be that perfect person.

I frequently look come the place in scripture wherein it talks of the fruits of the Spirit. Why? since I feel that it is God’s little summary the a Christian life. I check out it and also examine myself and ask, am I creating these fruits? If not, why not?? Nothing else that i desire to achieve will matter, if i am no bearing these fruits.
