I get so frustrated when I cannot see the fruit of the Spirit perfected in me all at once. I want to see each part of me that needs changing made perfect in a snap. But it hasn't happened like that. It is a process: a continual renewing of the mind. I learn bit by bit to defer in all things to Christ's example. One day it will all be complete, in heaven. For now, I will rest patiently in the hands of the Master Gardener.
