JOY!! Fruit of the Spirit Blog Hop

Hello Faith Blog Hoppers!!
Welcome to another Faith Blog Hop presented to you by Paper Tree House Studio!If you have been following the hop then you should be arriving here from( Carol’s blog). If you just came across this hop, then go to Paper Tree House to catch the beginning of the hop.

 I sing JOY JOY down in my soul, OH what the LORD has done for ME!! As,believer we Must trust the words in RED!! Jesus said,"Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.Ask and you will receive,and your JOY will be complete". (John 16:24) Wow!! what does your heart desire?? My heart is overflowing with peace and joy!! God has given me an amazing husband who LOVE Jesus!! We have such a sweet time together!! What has brought you JOY today?? Write it down,Create something special and remember to give GOD some Praise for it!!!

Every month a group of bold women gathers to make the Name of the Lord famous and to share the talents we have been given by Him. We also like to share a little bit of Truth that we have learned from the Bible and/or a bit about how He has impacted our lives. This month the theme is “The Fruit of the Spirit”.
As Christians we are expected to demonstrate the Fruit of the Spirit because the Spirit of God abides in us. In Galatians 5:22-23 we find the following definition: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” There are many misconceptions about this fruit. People look at the list of attributes and they are convinced that God has not given them one of the “fruits”, and so they live with remaining sin and a sense of defeat in certain areas of their lives.

If you look at the passage again you will notice that the word FRUIT is NOT plural. It is only ONE fruit, so if the Spirit of the Lord abides in you, then the attributes that characterize the Spirit live there as well. If you are not experiencing one of the characteristic of His Spirit in your life, pray that the Lord would cleanse you and purify you. He is into the business of completing those He saves. My prayer is that you would draw near to the Lord and that He in turn will draw near to you…
The same way that the Lord blesses those He loves we want to bless you. We have found an amazing line-up of sponsors and we want to share with you what you could win by hopping around with us:
