Fall Frittata Recipe

Time with Jesus & Butternut Squash Frittata

Galatians 5:22-23 (erv)

But the fruit that the Spirit produces in a person’s life is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these kinds of things. 

Read

Some days, I’m impatient. Other days, I’m angry. There are times I’m frustrated, quick to judge, harsh in my responses. If you can think of a “negative behavior”, you can rest assured that I’ve done it. This is something I struggle a lot with. If I call myself a Christian, how can my actions be so far from the actions of the Jesus at times?

I’ve mentioned struggling with shame from time to time. I think it’s one of the enemy’s greatest strongholds on me. Being a good human doesn’t come naturally, for anyone. The women who contribute to every single church bake sale, the men who volunteer in the child care rooms every Sunday, and the people who treat others with the type of love and compassion you think only comes in movies; they get the strength to do that only from Jesus.

Spending time with Jesus and in the Word isn’t just great for our souls and for our relationship with Him, it’s also great for our hearts. Our actions change because of Him and through Him. It’s nothing we can do on our own. Deciding to be more patient or have more self-control isn’t a possibility. Praying for it is. Learning those things from spending time with Him is the only thing that makes a lasting difference in our behaviors.

But in the midst of feeling bad about my actions that don’t always resemble those of the Spirit, God reminded me that feeling shame about those behaviors won’t do anything. Reconnecting with Him and returning to Him to be filled up will. Instead of hiding in shame from losing my temper or treating my husband in a not-so-nice way, I can come to Him to be redeemed and restored. I can learn how to do better next time.

Jesus reminds us of this in John 15:4: “Stay joined to me and I will stay joined to you. No branch can produce fruit alone. It must stay connected to the vine. It is the same with you. You cannot produce fruit alone. You must stay joined to me (ERV).”

Without Him, I’m nothing. But with Him, I can be everything I’ve ever hoped for, and so, so much more.

Write

What are some of your actions and behaviors that you feel bad about, or that cause you to want to hide in shame?

Pray

Take those things to God in prayer today, and ask for His redemption and guidance.
