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

The Fruit of Temperance (Self-Control)

Sometimes, not saying anything is the best answer.
You see, silence can never be misquoted.
~ Unknown Author ~

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
~ Proverbs 25:28 ~

People will always talk about you, especially when they envy you and the life you live. Let them…you affected their lives, they didn’t affect yours.
~ Unknown Author~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well in your world. Wahoo, encouraging thoughts to share. Praise The Lord.

The fruit of temperance (self-control) is powerful to behold and amazing in action.

Self-control produces growth that eventually is an acquired skill in any environment.

Self-control has control over self, regardless of what others say or do.

Self-control is a choice.
Self-control is spiritual maturity.
Self-control is inner strength.
Self-control is a bridled tongue.
Self-control is a character builder.

Self-control weathers the seasons.

Self-control rises above mediocrity and pettiness.

Self-control can be intimidating to dead bones walking.

Self-control can keep moving forward.

Self-control recognizes opinions are just opinions.

Self-control thanks God, for his mercy and grace, when stumbling moments happen.

Abundant blessings, my friends, to keep the faith, during trying times.

Self-control is always a work in progress. Stopping to say a quick prayer often slows my temper/tongue down a little.

It is so hard to be silent sometimes. I guess this shows our human side. I believe in trying to be silent and also trying to get along and compromise. 🙂 Bless you, Ann.
