Walking in the Spirit

"The true test of walking in the Spirit will not be the way we act but the way we react to the daily frustrations of life." - Beverly LaHaye
I read this the other day in my bible.
I couldn't get it out of my mind.
How am I dealing with my daily frustrations? Am I reacting to my husband or am I responding in love?
If I am being honest I have had my fair share of not so nice moments. I have been frustrated, overwhelmed, hurt, sad, angry, and upset and have acted upon those emotions.
There are more then one time that comes to mind that I am not proud of.
I want to represent the Lord well and to walk in the Spirit daily. No one is perfect -- if we were, we wouldn't need Jesus.
I need to continue to grab hold of the grace for the day, respond with love, and maybe even bit my tongue at times. (;
Walking in the Spirit and love. - Monica
