The fruit of the spirit is joy.
It is easy to be joyful when things go our way. The challenge is to be joyful when things do not go as planned. Lately, a lot of things haven’t gone the way that I had hoped. When my plans are interrupted by something unexpected, I can be tempted to feel sad and down. In moments like these I have to choose to be joyful. That’s because my joy is in Jesus and everything He has done for me, not in my silly plans!
