Just as a garden is laid out by a plan, God designs your life according to a plan. He uses the people, events, and circumstances in your life to guide you along the path toward godliness. Truly, He knows how to grow you to be like Him!
Three fruit of the Spirit that help your life’s garden plan thrive are patience, kindness, and goodness. Patience is like a seed hidden in the earth, out of view, while it secretly and slowly nurtures life. Kindness grows from the seed of patience in the dark depths where it develops a root system. It then pushes its head up through the soil until, at last, it cracks through the soil, visible to all. Goodness blossoms and blesses all who see it.
Do others see patience, kindness, and goodness being planted, taking root, and blooming in you? Spend time in God’s Word to give these fruit of the Spirit food and light and protection so you can see the harvest in your life.
God, help me cultivate Your patience, kindness, and goodness. Help me seek Your direction and love so I can follow the design You have for my life. Amen.
