Bearing Fruit

Some days, I wonder whether I bear good fruit or bad. I pray that the good outweighs the bad. I use a handy little tool in Ignatian Spirituality to help monitor my actions–the Examen. Each night, I review my day, giving some thought as to where I got distracted and left the good path, and when I encountered Jesus or was Compassion to someone. I pray for forgiveness and that I may be better the next day–quicker to recognize my sin and to step away from it. I give thanks for the Christ moments and pray to be more like Him. It is a never-ending process but I am grateful for the introspection and for what I learn about myself and the world.

What kind of fruit did you bear today?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
