Am I refreshment?
Like a ripe, healthy orange
on a hot summer afternoon…
Am I hope?
Like the fresh, plump strawberry
pleasantly red and bursting with flavor…
Am I sustenance?
Like a crisp, juicy apple
as crunchy and bright as the leaves when it is in season…
Am I comfort?
Like the grapes crushed into wine
to be offered at the alter with bread…

If I am
May I be
When I am
May I see…

…my fruits are of Thy Spirit…

*With thanks for Paul’s message in Galatians 5:22-26
