Self Control (Fruit of the Spirit)

FOTS Self Control
How appropriate (and frustrating) that my painting about self control is taking a long time, and not coming together as I would wish! Well, I have finished it, at least for today... sometimes I decide later that I should go back and change things, or touch them up a bit. 

One of the aspects of self control that suggested itself to me was waiting to open a package that is all wrapped up. It can be SO TOUGH to wait! Another thought was of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, praying to His Father, giving up His own wishes with tears, and drops of bloody sweat. Now that is the kind of control that is a spiritual control!

Based on Galatians 5:22-23 (New American Standard Bible) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
