If you have read Jesus’ biography, you know he did not leave us alone, he gave us his Holy Spirit as our constant companion.
Your family, friends, and those you admire will not always be with you, but the Holy Spirit is. Wherever you are, call out and listen; the Holy Spirit will come and give you guidance, wisdom, and understanding.
My first encounter with the Holy Spirit was being baptized. Did I understand it then, no, but the Holy Spirit did.
My second encounter was wondering what this life and my life was about. The Holy Spirit took that vague thinking of mine and turned it into my greatest adventure.
Look back on your life and see where you have been and now ask yourself where am I going from here. Come Holy Spirit!
The Holy Spirit can speak to you through your daily circumstances, reading a book, conversation with a friend, music, long checkout line, drama, joys, nature, dirty diapers, local and international news, grouchy customer, walking, running, flat tire, entertainment, your troubles, sadness, vexations, and even your pet or that pesky mosquito; there is no limit to his voice only my failure to listen.
Come Holy Spirit
- when I find myself helpless and hopeless
- when I feel like I have been rejected again
- when I am suffering
- when I am unable to love those around me
- when I am happy again
The more you come to know the Holy Spirit and see his action in your life he begins to impart to you characteristics of his personality: love, joy, peace, and patience.
Come Holy Spirit and fill my life with you.
“I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. (John 14:18 NAB)
