"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness..." Galatians 5:22
The Lord has put his Spirit within us, the Spirit of joy! This joy does not come from outward circumstances, whether that be material things or acheivements. This joy comes from knowing and being in relationship with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. As we learn to abide in the Spirit, he blesses us with these "fruits."
Seek to live close to the Lord and be open to what He is doing in your life and heart today. Ask for the Spirit to direct your thoughts and actions. Focus on the Lord, for he goes before and He is beside us. You will find these things, love, joy, and peace, only in His presence.
