Hi, new here! (I guess everyone is!) There's so much good stuff in this post.

I love that you include the phrase "any marginal growth" when talking about the fruit of the Spirit - it's so tempting to say, "If I don't have record-breaking-pumpkin-sized love for people right now I'm failing."

The whole list of subtle stuff stuff the Spirit does is particularly encouraging for me, who's 'always been a Christian' and assumes this stuff is only the normal human response, or worse, something I made happen.

I'm also a disabled person who's always had my disability, and newly struggling with not being OK with it, and your reminder that all healing here is a temporary sign is helpful.

Thank you so much for all this and more I didn't mention!
