living out the Word of God..

Galations 5:22-23

22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

I've been praying a lot lately about the job I am doing as a wife and mother. I am seeing some things that I need to correct in my attitude and my actions towards my husband & children. I am really trying to soak these scriptures in and make them become part of me. I want my husband to "safely trust" me and my children to "rise up and call me blessed". I want my family to know and to feel just how much I love them. I want to be unselfish and to always put them first. I want my husband to be happy and secure in my love and our babies to be secure in the fact that they and their Daddy are Mama's #1 priorities.

I want everything this holiday season to reflect what unselfishness is. The true reason for the season. And I can't do that if my attitude stinks! So, I am reading and saying and writing this verse down every day and I am praying this verse. I am talking to the Lord about how I need these words, this truth, to change me.

So, this is my verse this week. I am posting it on my sidebar and next week I will have a new one. Let me know what verses are speaking to you where you are in your life right now. What is the Word of God saying to you? Please share, I would love to pray for you. :)
