Fruits of the Spirit – Self Control

The Spirit makes us better;
As we work together;
Ready to take on stress;
And be at our best.

Controlling pressures
And worldly pleasures.
The Holy Spirit in us
Providing the big plus.

Helping us be aware;
Always taking care;
Telling us what to do
And getting us through.

The world can give us a fake
So why not take a break.
Trust the way
And always obey.

Step ahead with sound mind;
His steadying influence find.
Step ahead empowered;
Accepting the grace He showered.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
