Though you feel safest when your life is predictable and things seem to be under control, I want you to break free and discover the adventures I have planned for you.
Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me.
Remember that I can make all things—including your failures—work together for good because you love Me and are called according to My purpose.
As you trust Me more and more, you are able to receive Me and My blessings abundantly. Be still, and know that I am God.
But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.
