Today is here.
Today is fresh.
Today, brings promise. Today, bright and new.
Today; I see over the hills, valleys, darks, and dips of life the tapestry of Your weaving in me.
You; who formed me, know me, lead me, let me stumble and fall.
Let my heart know You, seek You, wrap around who You are.
Today is here. Now. And I’m standing in it. Aware.
vs 5-6But we who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to receive everything promised to us who are right with God through faith. For when we place our faith in Christ Jesus, it makes no difference to God whether we are circumcised or not circumcised. What is important is faith expressing itself in love.
vs 13-14 For you have been called to live in freedom–not freedom to satisfy your sinful nature, but freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
vs 22 -26 But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Here there is no conflict with the law.
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. If we are living now by the Holy Spirit, let us follow the Holy Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Let us not become conceited, or irritate one another, or be jealous of one another.
