"Up Up & Away" is the fourth print in the Fruit of the Spirit series. Representing Self-Control, a young child watches as her balloon floats away.
Self-Control is more then simply controlling oneself in the areas of eating and drinking. When the fruit of self-control is manifested, it partly determines how we react to various circumstances
...when something we cherish slips away
...when something we desire is out of our grasp
...or when a situation is beyond our control.
As we yield to the Spirit of God, the fruit of Self-Control will grow in our lives and become a portion of the essence of who we are.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." - Galatians 5:23
In the Fruit of the Spirit print series, Peace and Goodness are yet to be completed.
