Love is a choice not a feeling/emotion. It does not promise easy or rosy. If we continue to choose love it does get better.
If I choose love it is much easier to have joy.
If I choose more joy it is much easier to be at peace.
If I choose to walk in peace it is much easier for me to be patient.
If I choose patience than I can be a kinder person.
If I can show kindness I can begin to see more goodness.
If I choose to see goodness my faith will rise.
If I choose faithfulness then gentleness will follow.
If I choose gentleness it is much easier to control myself.
It all starts with me choosing to love.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
