October Journey: Working On My Fruits

Happy October!  Can you believe it’s already here?
I enjoy October for the pumpkin everything:  pies, candles, coffee!  Yup, there’s just something about waking up in the morning and opening up my windows to feel the fresh cool air.  It’s so exciting to enter a new season isn’t it?  There’s a sense of new beginnings on the horizon.  Starting over.  I just love that.  

Lately, the Lord has been preparing me for this new season.  Not just in the physical, but in the spiritual.  I have felt a sudden urgency to study Galatians 5:22-23 and work on my fruits.   I’m not perfect.  Yes I can say that.  I know that as Moms, we sometimes strive for perfection or strive to be that “perfect Mom” whoever she is?  Exactly.  She don’t exist!  And there is no such thing as “super Mom” either.  So, it’s okay to say we don’t got it all together.  God created us to be Moms for the children He has blessed us to love.  He is shaping us and molding us.  Even in those tough moments, He is perfecting us.  

I asked my daughter one day to be honest and tell me which fruit of the spirit I needed to work on and she sure nailed it!  She then asked me which fruits I thought she needed help with and she agreed.  It was a humbling moment, yet it was truth for all of us.  It’s time to be real isn’t? And it’s sad to say, that we do fall short.  Working on our fruits involves working on ourselves, our hearts.  

Examine me,  God and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts.  
Psalm 139:23

As Women of God, we need to show forth these traits in our daily lives:  love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Jesus said in Matthew 7:16, we will be recognized by our fruits.  A life completely devoted to Jesus shows forth these fruits.  I want that!  Do you?  I want my walk with the Lord to be passionate, deep and wide.  

Bearing these fruits is a constant journey.  We can’t do this on our own.  No matter what or how hard we try, we will fail.  We need help.  It’s only by the power of the Holy Spirit can we bear these fruits.  He will help us, all we need to do is ask.  

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15: 13 

I’m so excited to begin this devotional study in October.  We will be diving into this in homeschool too.  You are free to join me this month on this Fruits of the Spirit journey.  Let’s work on our fruits together to be better Moms, Wives and Daughters.  So others may see Jesus in us.  All for His honor and glory, not ours.  

Blessings and Shalom, 

Are you challenged to work on your fruits this month?  I’d love to know who is joining in.  It will be fun to interact and share.

Celebrating Sukkot With Your Children

Keep your face to the sunshine
and you cannot see the shadow.
It’s what sunflowers do.”

Feast of Tabernacles

This week our family prepared for and celebrated a special time called the Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot.  It’s a joyful feast that begins four days after Yom Kippur and that lasts eight days. God told the Jewish people to live in booths for seven days each year, starting on 15 Tishri (September-October) to remember that the Lord brought us out of Egypt.  This holiday is like our harvest festival and we also thank God for the good harvest and all the good things he has provided.  God takes care of His people.  We should thank Him for what He gives us.  Psalm 118:29 says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good”.

The booth we build is called a sukkah.  It is a temporary structure built of wood and canvas to represent the booths the Israelites lived in during the forty years of wilderness wanderings on their journey from Egypt to the promised land of Israel.  This year, we used our patio and decorated it with autumn leaves, apples, and grapes that hung from the ceiling.  Princess colored and made her own decorations and we hung them on some lace across the patio.  We invited our family over and ate dinner outside in our sukkah while looking up at the stars.  We taught our family about the holiday and how important it is for Believers in Jesus to understand what Sukkot means for us too.

Sukkot also teaches a lot about the Messiah Jesus.  The prophet Zechariah pointed to the day when the Messiah will dwell (same root word as tabernacle or sukkah) on the earth and all the people of the earth and all the people will know Him.  In the Messianic kingdom, the feast of Sukkot will be an important holiday on which to worship God (Zechariah 14:16-19).

How exciting!  I can’t wait!  Come Lord Jesus come!

Even on the last day of Sukkot which is called Hoshannah Rabbah, Jesus said of himself, “I am the light of the world” and “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him” (John 8:12; 7:37-38). Taken from the Complete Jewish Bible by David H.
