Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. - Ephesians 4:29-32 Dear Jesus, You have changed me by your love so that I have learned to use my words to build others up. But I so easily fall back into criticism. It's easy to be the old me. It takes concentration to bridle the mouth when I am disappointed or feel that someone is not respecting me or my needs. In a weird twisted way I can fall into thinking that talking about them to others will somehow make my life better. That's why your words here from Paul are so helpful for me. They set a clear direction for my heart and my mouth. They tell me that your Holy Spirit is regularly reminding me in my heart to be loving, kind, compassionate and forgiving to everyone. I cannot forget these words once I have read them. So, be with me today and help me speak wholesome words that leave a blessing in the memories of others. Amen Pastor Don Patterson Words are the seeds of the soul, growing whatever was planted whether good or bad. #areasonforhope #devotional #devotion #bible #holybible #bibleverse #scripture #verseoftheday #dailyverse #scriptureoftheday #godsword #redeemed #jesuschrist #jesussaves #christ #jesus #scriptureverse #wordstoliveby #quote

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23 NET2) ARE YOU BEARING OR BARREN? As believers we often want to know if we are on the right path. There are so many paths in this world that it is easy to get distracted by things that don't matter. Well, God has given us a few tools to make sure that we know that we are going in the right direction. A few of those things are the fruit of the Spirit. We are instructed to walk by the Spirit and not according to the flesh so we don't conform to this world (Galatians 5:25). This Holy Spirit has left us some clues to see if we really are receiving and walking according to His power or our own. Do you have a loving spirit? Love forgives, covers, protects, and is not jealous or envious. Do you have joy? Regardless of the situation that you are in can you look to God full of hope because of what He has done? Do you have peace and patience? Are you the one that can walk through the storm and chaos and be unmoved patiently waiting for the Lord to bring you to your destination? Do you display kindness and goodness? Can you bless those who are less fortunate, the rejected, the despised or be good to those who hate you? Are you faithful? When God asks you to do something or not do something can you consider it done? When you give your word to people do you follow through? Do you have a gentle heart and self-control? Can you get the truth across without it being harsh? How do you handle your parents, brothers, and sisters? Can you can you control your emotions, attitudes, habits, and ways? These things are all land marks of the operation of the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is something that we produces with the Spirit's help.Through faith we ask Him to help develop these things in us so that we can go from dead barren trees to trees that are bearing much fruit! #strangers #exiles #Jesus #Christ  #God #devotion #devotional #meditation #biblestudy #teenstudy #youngadults #HolySpirit #fruit #love #joy #peace #patience #kindness #goodness #faithfulness #gentleness #selfcontrol

God reminded me this morning, how will we know it is His voice if we are not spending time with Him. Being a mother of young children and pregnant, it is a struggle to wake up early unless God helps me wake up. It is such a blessing to me to be up early and have uninterrupted time with God before I start my day! ✨ ✨ My prayer for today, “God, thank you for forgiving me of my sins. God please help me forgive those that have sinned against me or those that I perceive have transgressed against me. Lord, I need to remember that You go before me AND that You fight my battles. Lord, I want to hear Your voice to help me be loving today, and show kindness, and allow You to work in all situations. I want to unclog my blessings pipe and have my eyes open more to see You working in my life and those around me. In Jesus’s name, Amen.” #prayer #Lord #God #Jesus #blessed #scripture #photoquote #devotion #thrive #joy #peace #forgiveness #happiness
What would your life look like a year from now if you say YES to your ❤️ 's true desires consistently & NO to what felt like misguided direction from other's opinions about your life? #magicalmonday

You can probably think about something in your life right now that you’re dealing with because of someone else’s actions. But why is it your problem? Pastor Jon talks about that in today’s Grace Talks video. Why do we have to shoulder the burden and weight of other people’s mistakes? https://youtu. #devotion #GraceTalks https://blog.mikepolinske.info/2019/09/23/punished-for-others-mistakes-youtube-2/
I would hope that these stats aren't the 100 percent truth but the man of the house is supposed t be the spiritual leader. Dads are essential in the church and it seems like they are on the decline. Let us pray for the men in our communities that they will step up and be an example to their children. #dads #dad #church #salvation #love #jesus #god #bloodofthelamb #prayer #pray #ministry #minister #stepup #bible #example #devotion #kids #household #home #doyourpart #instasaved #insta
• There is value in waiting • Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven If we force ourselves into something we are not meant to be, we miss out on the beauty that we could experience within God's plan. Enjoy your season. Give yourself a time to grow. Work through your waiting season and learn from it. And whatever you are waiting for at this moment, embrace it. Know that in your season of waiting, you are still favored and God is at work, preparing something good for you because He has made everything beautiful in its time. ❤ #devotion
