Fruit of the Spirit Faith Blog Hop


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 the Paper Tree House blog.  If you just came across this hop, then go to Paper Tree House to catch the beginning of the hop.

Every month a group of bold women gather 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:











Now in order to win one of these Grand Prizes you will have like us on Facebook, leave a comment on this post, and become a follower on our blog. Then you have to follow the hop order as you follow and leave messages in the posts of all the amazing and talented women that are part of the lineup. All throughout the hop you will find RAK’s and special giveaways, so make sure that you complete the entire hop!

For this hop I created this mini-book:



I have decided that my books are to reflect the Truth. :) On the last page of this book, my intentions are to write a prayer for my daughter.  In it I will express that because she was hand-made with love by God, it is my prayer that one day she too will be able to experience the Lord's Spirit in action in her life.  That she too, one day, can do something that apart from Christ she would have not been able to do.. and when that happens may she remember why she was able to accomplish this!

I have a little something to share with you:


If you become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment, I will be choosing the winner of the punch you need to make this flower.

To continue with some fun, hop on over to Lynn's blog at http://www.pensandneedles-lynn.blogspot.com!  

Love in Christ,

Nana

Hello,
I love the book you made for your daughter. The cover is just so cute. I like how you put that you are handmade by God. I love the scripture in the bible where he says he hand picked us. It kind of boggles your mind that he would pick and create you. THanks for sharing the book with us!!
