Bible Verse of the Day
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.

I challenge each of us today to ask God to open our eyes (and Hearts)to love, joy and peace.
My prayer for each of us today is the Spirit will rise up in us brotherly love for one another, occasions and a feelings of joy, and the peace that knows that God’s heart is good towards us, no matter our earthly circumstances and that we will live in harmony with those He brings in our lives.
Have a blessed day,
