What I want Wednesday: Self Control

I mentioned before that I’m only eating products from the earth for this month. Sort of like the Daniel Fast.

It hasn’t been easy! Like I said, I felt drained and very tired every day. And to function at work, it’s just not possible. That is completely hard to do. I have incorporated chicken into my diet because I just couldn’t hack it without it.

I found mostly though that I need restraint more than anything. I wondered how in the world do you control yourself in those cases. How do people with self-control do it?

Then I got this alert from my Bible app.

“For the Fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control. Against such things there is no law.”

{Galatians 5:22-23}

 

I reflected on this for a while, since what I’m wanting in life is all those things. However, self control was something I didn’t realize I could achieve by having the Spirit. I thought it was something that I earned on my own.

So in order to achieve self control and many other things, I’m trying to become more spiritual and close to God through the Holy Spirit. Who would have thought!

Stay tuned for Friday, I’ll upload a new fashion post!

Stay Fancy,
Ana Maggie
