A complex design

Every New Year  I reflect on what happened the past year and what the New Year will bring. Many things have happened this year that have given me the conclusion that I don't know God's complex design. I don't know why some things happened the way they did. It has been a crazy year! Concluding that God's way is the best way.   The fruits of the spirit are...  Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control. If you really think about it, how different would the outcome be in situations we have faced  if we followed this guideline? Would we be more loving with people? Patient and joyful in waiting? Kind and gentle to prickly people? Would we have lived a more disciplined life? How much more peace would we have in our circumstances if we knew God was in control and that it is our job to respond in his divine order. I hope this helps you as much helps me. Happy New Year!  ...  Galatians 5: 16-26
