31 Days to Fruitful Living

Fruit of the Spirit

I am a city girl with a black thumb.  I do not grow things.  Fruit is purchased at the supermarket and brought home.  I do not like to get my hands dirty.

For 2013, my one-word focus was “fruitilicious.”  My desire to is to live a fruitful life for God, but He is teaching me that this will require me to put in some spiritual elbow grease.  I can’t buy this kind of fruit in the store.  I must cultivate it.

So, for 31 days, I explored what it would require for me to live a more fruitful life.  I hope you will join me.  I will do my best to not let my black thumb get in the way of things.
