Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience…

Patience, Lord, a state of emotional calm in the face of
-Calm without complaint or irritation

Patience Lord? Many of us are living on the edge
-We have too much to do
-We have not enough to do
-Tears are just below the surface
-Tears are on the surface of our cheeks
-Our children don’t understand what’s going on
-We don’t understand what’s going on
-We can’t reach out with a hug
-We can’t imagine living much longer without a hug
-Too many of us are alone and lonely
-Too many of us need a quiet space in the cacophony of our homes

Patience Lord is far from us
-Show us Lord how the fruit of the Spirit becomes the fruit of our lives
-Be patient with us Lord on days when we display spoiled fruit
-Grant us Lord, an extra measure of your Spirit in these difficult times

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity and faithfulness.

May this fruit more and more become ours and as it does may it bring fruitful hope to the lives of those around us.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

“O God Beyond all Praising”

– O God beyond all praising,we worship You today
– And sing the love amazing that songs cannot repay;
– For we can only wonder at every gift You send,
– At blessings without number and mercies without end:
– We lift our hearts before You and wait upon Your Word,
– We honor and adore You, our great and mighty Lord.

– Then hear, O gracious Savior, accept the love we bring,
– That we who know your favor may serve you as our King;
– And whether our tomorrows be filled with good or ill,
– We’ll triumph through our sorrows and rise to bless You still:
– To marvel at Your beauty and glory in Your ways,
– And make a joyful duty our sacrifice of praise
