Got Fruit?

I start my new job tomorrow and I have a few jitters but I know that is perfectly normal - the Lord goes before me!


I had the day off work today and was praying this morning about my desire to be successful in this new position. "What does that success look like?", I thought. As I reflected, the following came to mind: quick to learn new technical terminology, make very few mistakes, have a feeling of accomplishment and confidence in a job well done at the end of the day, be looked at by my co-workers as a dependable, hard working, knowledgeable person in my area.


Then I thought, "What is God's idea of being a success?" The fruit of the Spirit came to mind. We are a success, by God's standards, when we demonstrate the fruit of His Spirit.





If I have the Spirit of God living in me, then I will produce fruit - fruit that is pleasing to God. I am sure to have favour, first with my Heavenly Father and secondly with my co-workers....in that order!






Please say a little pray for me that I will sleep well tonight and wake up refreshed and ready for the new job!

Oh this is so good Little Missionary Julie.
The fruit of the Spirit!
I am really looking forward to your new job!
You have grown spiritually so much since you glided on to Pilgrim Pals and I think that the many trials that you went through did it.
You are coming out gold and I am so proud of you!!!
Love Terry
