God is cleaning my house: Update on my husband

The Holy Spirit is in my condo and He's cleaning my house and He's started with me!

The most wonderful thing is happening! It's like my husband and I are falling in love all over again! Every since the Holy Spirit fell on me it's like I'm seeing things through new and different eyes and when I look at my husband through Christ's eyes something happens! I start loving him with God's love and I can't see his faults anymore! It's like being on a honeymoon again!

When I keep my focus on Christ a sweetness comes into my home and my husband responds to this! We are falling all over each other trying to help each other out! Folks, miracles are happening here!!!! Christ's love is so powerful!!!!!!! Even an athiest responds to Christ's love! Isn't that powerful, Isn't HE powerful!!

I asked my husband the other day what he thinks would bring him true joy, I was very curious what he thinks would make him have joy and peace. He replied he thought if he had financial security that would allow him freedom then he would happy. I asked him "so lets say you had financial security that brought you freedom but you got sick, then all the money in the bank wouldn't be able to give you joy, right?" I asked him then "what if there was something that could give you joy, TRUE joy even when nothing is going your way. Joy when you're sick, joy when you're poor. JOY!" He response was "that isn't possible." My respose back "with CHRIST it is!!!"

I feel very strongly what the Holy Spirit is calling me to do in regards to my husband. He is calling me to love my husband with Christ's love and to allow HIM to shine through me. Philippians 2:12-16 NIV reads Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life- in order that Imay boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.
