What If?

Lord, what if I stalled, paused before every single action or word and waited on You? I would never speak ahead of You. I would let You speak and I’d open my mouth only if You were opening it. I would let You go first. I would look to You then follow where You lead. I would do next whatever You say to do. I would get Your blessing, Your nod, Your approval before moving ahead with the next deed, the next word, the next thought. If only I would handle every moment of every day with that much consideration, that much self-control, that much faith, that much humble reliance.

But the fruit of the Spirit
is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law.
And they that are Christ’s
have crucified the flesh
with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit,
let us also walk in the Spirit.
~Galatians 5:22-25

Growing in grace, I pray…
