Galatians 5:22-23 (The Message Translation) But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard- things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with…

Teach Us To Pray; for peace over anxiety
