Featured Post:
"Walking In the Spirit"

I was highly encouraged in my role as a momma facing the start of a new week by this post shared by Angela over at Call Her Blessed.  Here is an excerpt of what she shared:
Walking in the Spirit.
I just can't seem to get away from this thought lately.
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. ~Galatians 5:16
If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. ~Galatians 5:25
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. ~Romans 8:14

My day-to-day walk glorifies God so much more when I am walking in the spirit. My thoughts are right ... my speech is right ... my attitude is right. I find myself being less frustrated over the little things.  I'm kinder & have more patience.  When I choose to walk in the Spirit, as opposed to walking in the flesh, I have an eternal focus. I tend to look at things from heaven's point of view ... in light of eternity. It's pretty easy to become focused when I think of anything in light of eternity.  To walk in the Spirit is to follow His leading, allowing Him to guide my steps and conform my mind. 
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. ~Isaiah 26:3
There are great benefits to crucifying the flesh & walking in the spirit. By faith, choosing to rely on Him to guide me in thought, word, & deed, I can demonstrate daily, moment-to-moment holiness which brings honor to God.  Another benefit of walking in the Spirit, my life can show forth the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. {Gal.5:22-23}

Walking in the Spirit is allowing His Word to dwell in us ... living His Word out loud! When I allow His Word to dwell in me, my heart is filled with thankfulness, singing, & joy!

To read this post in its entirety, I highly encourage you to hop on over to Call Her Blessed, here.



Give thanks to the Lord!  His love endures forever!
