Fruit of the Spirit

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

(The New International Version. 2011)

As listed here, this fruit is the evidence one may expect from a life in which the Spirit of God is living and reigning. The fruit of the Spirit, as listed in Galatians 5:22-23, is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Depending on the Bible version used, some of the “fruit” may use a different word, such as the use of temperance in the King James Version instead of self-control (New International Version). Nonetheless, fruit of the Spirit of God is not something we produce ourselves; it is not a work of the flesh, something WE works towards, but rather evidence that the Spirit of God is working in and through us.

These verses were the inspiration behind one of my newest collection of digital art journal papers, Fruit of the Spirit.

Creative team member, Carolyn Phillips, used the digital art journal paper pack to create some journal pages. I love how she printed out the papers and incorporated the images into her own journal pages using Dylusions spray ink and stencils!

Digital art papers do make it easy to get that blank page started! And because the papers are digital, you can re-size them to fit your own journal and you print out only what you want to use! PLUS you never run out of your favorite papers either! These particular images would make great greeting card fronts as well.

You can find this collection here in my Etsy Shop: Praierie Papier Cottage  For your convenience, all my products are digital, ready-to-print instant downloads!

As always, thank you SO much for stopping by!

Hugs and Toodles!
