Fruit Of the Spirit

I feel inspired.

Glowing in pregnancy with the peace of God.

I want to give birth to something.

Something noble and lovely.

Something of good report and of good virtue.

Something uplifting like the sweet smelling fruit

of a tree bringing forth in its season

for the healing of the nations.


Is it that when I give birth to something

I feel inspired.

Knowing that I endured the race set before me.

I did not faint or give up.

I pushed my way through obstacles.

I held on to the vision with my help coming from

the Lord who supplies the seed and increases the fruit

and the sufficiency in all things. (2 Cor. 9:8-10)

Now, I dance in the joy of His prosperity.

His righteousness endures forever.

“Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”

James 3:18
