What kind of fruit are my actions growing?

day #3

I woke up this morning to a blanket of white glitter covering everything.
Snow is so pretty it makes everything look different.
I need to see things differently.

I love how these look, so bright.

As I was taking these photos this morning my fingers were getting numb, usually as long as I am taking photos I don't "feel" the cold. This morning I just grabbed my boots, jacket & camera. Needless to say my fingers were numb. After awhile I went back inside to find warmer clothes rather then pj pants. All this to say that I think I have become numb to some things. My view or my life experiences do not seem to bring forth the outcome I wish.
My mind is so distracted by so many things that I have become numb to some things.
I want to be more compassionate.bold (for Jesus).humble.loving.kind.merciful, gracious.
Basically I need to be awakened to new life, I think I have been trying to wake myself up through different things, you know the whole "I got,myself & I"
HELLO!! not.working.bethany.
I need direction.

Oh God, fill me with your Holy Spirit. Give me boldness to love You & others more completely. I want to honor You in all I do. Give me the discipline & desire to seek You with a humble heart. Father refresh me. Give me a greater spirit of compassion, mercy, love & grace.
Open my eyes, to see how You see. Help me to pour into others & to seek what I can learn from Your people. Oh God, take what I know & pour it all over my heart. I believe it! That You are good, faithful, truth, peace, satisfaction, my rest, contentment, sovereign & Lord.
Take selfishness, greed, pride, anger, hatred, discontentment, deceit & get it far from me. That has no place here,

I read this today...
17"And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 18But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled.19 Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, 20that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you...Acts 3:17-20

I have been acting & living in ignorance.
Father, forgive me for my ways.

What kind of fruit are my actions growing? It has been rotten lately....

"....In your presence I belong, and without you I am lost. Come and change me, from the inside.In my weakness You are strong, by the power of the cross. Come and change me, from the inside. Who am I, and where am I going? What kind of fruit, Are my actions growing? Staring at the pages You are staring at the pages, Of my life. Is my passion just to know You? Am I living this life to show you? Staring at the pages...."(Pages by Leeland)

You are staring at the pages, Of my life
