I love Sunday Spotlight because it allows me to share some encouragement that I’ve come across and celebrate some awesome people! I’m kicking off Sunday Spotlight with one of my favorite instagrammers, @jordanleedooley. She is the founder of @soulscripts and is constantly sharing biblical insight with passion, humor, and rawness. Such a blessing!! I hope you love her as much as I do!! ⠀⠀ “When I catch myself getting grumpy and irritable, I have to remember that fruit is a direct result of the root, of the seed it busts through and buds from. What I produce on the outside is a direct byproduct of what's going on deep inside the soil of my soul. If it's not love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control that oozes from every fiber of my being, then I need to check the root...i need to check in with the pursuit of my soul...and with what I'm feeding it.
Notice, though, how the fruit of the Spirit doesn't say PERFECTION. It says patience. It says kindness. It says peace. Not perfect. Perhaps we become irritable because we're actually in some twisted way resisting Holy Spirit in pursuit of perfection and put togetherness. Maybe being Christian isn't being a certain "way," wearing a certain dress, or fitting a mold. Perhaps it's the very opposite. Maybe it's busting and budding out of the empty shell of perfectionism we try to create and just...being, becoming, and blooming. #soulscripts “ @jordanleedooley - 16 days ago
