Bring It Into Play
What’s going on in your heart?
The way you treat people is one of the biggest indicators of the condition of your heart.
Feeling irritated. Snapping at loved ones. Saying harsh things. Expecting everyone to do things your way, reflects more on you than the people around you.
Need an attitude adjustment? Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you up and to change your attitude. Express your desire to do better.
Walking each day with Jesus and living in connection with the Holy Spirit will change your heart because ...”the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,” Galatians 5:22.
Cut Out or Draw a Heart. On one put all the negative emotions and reactions that you have been feeling lately.
Flip the heart over and write the Fruits of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5:22-23.
Then pray and ask God to let the Fruits of the Spirit describe you. Put the heart somewhere visible to remind you to ask for help when the negative things start to plague your heart.
Father, I can feel the negative emotions and actions in my heart. I don't want them there. Please cleanse my heart and make it whole, so I can overflow with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness, self-control. I want those words to describe me. Your Holiness amazes me God. My heart desires to be more like you. I love you so much. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
