Faith fruit πŸ“πŸ’

Faith is on display by our fruit!

A tree as it grows and grows it begins to bear fruit. Depending on the environment, soil, location will more than likely dictate what fruit a natural tree will bear.

If we look at this in the context of us as people being fruit bearing and trees planted by the waters (Psalm 1:3) we should bear fruit in season and out and all kinds of fruit.

But, sometimes we don’t bear much if any good fruit in the beginning of our faith as we still have much of the old nature still residing in our soul.

Our soul is our mind, will, and emotions. These parts of us do not get reborn at salvation. They have to go through a process of change to reflect the rebirth of our spirit.

Even so, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the unhealthy tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
MATTHEW 7:17‭-‬18 AMP

So, what has to happen is the pruning begins to take place as we journey into building our relationship with the Lord. The pruning happens to remove dead or useless parts to then bear more and better fruit.

He will begin to show you what you no longer need in your life and begin to clip at it so it can be removed from you.

Like for me He has been using my Pastor in my life to help clip depression, anxiety, worry, doubt, and fear from my life as they only have adverse benefits to my life.

They are counterintuitive to the life of faith and mush deminish and thankfully in her workings with me they have been. This way I can stop producing the fruit of those things in my life and begin to produce better more God resembling fruit.

In my unhealthy nature prior to coming to Reformation Developmental Center the contents of my soul and still living much in the old nature I was indeed bearing those bad fruits. An unhealthy tree cannot beat good fruit.

Pastor Juanita Gibbs took me under her care and began to help change the soil I was planted in, cultivate a new environment to begin to thrive in, as well as, help the buddings of good fruit begin to bear forth as the old branches got clipped away.

Greetings Readers! I began blogging in Aug 2017 about my personal experiences, thing I have going on in my life that I am working toward overcoming. I write my blogs to help encourage others that may be going through some of the things like I have dealt with in life to show them there is help and hope no matter what we are going through in life. My writings have helped me to begin to write my very first book and it is coming along greatly and I sure hope to have it published perhaps next year would be great. So, please stay tuned for that! I want my life to help inspire others to keep going and to not quit when life gets hard. We all may face different things but we can learn from each other if we see how we overcome in an area that another may be struggling in. I write to encourage and uplift to bring a glimmer of hope when there isn't much offered out there in the world today. I have been an avid reader for years and this year has been a year of me putting my writing out there for the world to begin to see as I have of others. ~Love Life ~ Live Life~ ;)
