When you can choose them all….
- Lays out for us the fruit of the Spirit. Every so often, we focus on one and how to execute that one effectively and/or consistently. However, we see that verse 22 points out the word [FRUIT] and not [FRUITS]. Which leads me to believe that all 9 (Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, meekness, temperance, goodness, and faith) form one fruit! Which is a great correlation to scriptures which speak of one spirit, one body, on faith, and one baptism. (Ephesians 4:4-6)
- I challenge you (along with myself) to demonstrate the Fruit of the Spirit through the power of the Holy Ghost!
I’m so excited to have FINALLY gone through with one of my many goals; making a YouTube channel.
In this video I touch on sitting on gifts due to feeling insecure or inadequate. I also touch on being interrupted by my own standards – sometimes they are just way to high. Hence, shutting down the very thing that I was trying to accomplish. Continue reading
Its common to be affected by what someone may say to you, and how someone may treat you, mentally, physically and emotionally..how ever – it doesn’t have to shape the way that you live. Treatment of others doesn’t have to become YOUR IDENTITY.
Regardless of the situation/circumstance, and its affects on us, no matter how it has bent us, shaped us…we have the ability to bounce back – to recover readily!
We have the option to not look like what we’ve been through….

No thank you, I’m good. I have my own tea!

CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE!
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
It is important that we keep ourselves encouraged – we are children of God!
We are the light of the world – and how can we inspire others to Christ if our countenance is always sad, irritated, complaining, etc?
The battle is – for the majority- in our mind
What we feel is a reflection of what we think or tell ourselves. If we can nip in the bud what we think and tell ourselves we can change how we feel. Thus, this is the purpose of daily nuggets. I will post quotes, pictures, videos, songs and the like to help keep us encouraged! NUGGET #1

Let us stop becoming dependent upon others to make us happy – create the type of environment you desire! Make yourself laugh!
We have heard this many many times before… but do we truly believe it?
Activation of faith is required. Trust and believe with all your soul and might that God is able do the unthinkable, the unimaginable. However, faith without works is dead….
