Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

E is for…

Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.
~ Author Unknown ~

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
~ Galatians 5:22-23 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Everyday choices bring experience. Life comes down to choices. Some choices give experience to move forward, while another can keep us stuck.

Both positive and negative experiences teach us something.

The key is to evaluate and own our part based on our choice. Some choices are tied to emotions.

Spiritual fruit: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance; develops and grows from within, and help balance the emotional roller coaster rides.

Encouragement can heal us to move on.
Encouragement can elevate us out of a rut.
Encouragement can teach us another way.
Encouragement can empower us to believe by faith.

Encouragement is a powerful blessing to give and receive when we endure the unexpected.

Blessings, my friends, as we encourage one another and enjoy the F to Z challenge! (smile)

Feel free to share your thoughts.
