Holy-Spirited Peace and Understanding… #477

Standard

477

I have had this idea resting on my brain about the Holy Spirit… The Lord STILL wakes me up to write my processing and devotions out – my scripture thoughts often are not new to the world, but I enjoy feeling them re-percolating thru my head… So now I routinely wake after about six hours good sleep, although now in pain post surgery early in the morning causing me to switch from the bed to the chair to get the blood flowing – then after a while, the pain subsides… Blessedly it’s my right arm which writes by swyping on my phone – All 500 pieces one phone (a miracle of technology)! After this Holy Spirit distraction, I hopefully will enter the “second sleep”…

Holy-Spirited Peace and Understanding…

John 14: 15-17 “If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth.”

Here’s my thought about that crazy fabulous Holy Spirit, who/that replaces Jesus as “another” – in addition to the support given to the disciples and us, it ALSO means the Holy Spirit, like Jesus, does not judge, and has forgiving ways – the Holy Spirit brings out the truth – and lends advice…

The Holy Spirit can be the love that manifests itself in the thousands of people whom come alongside you in your grief, let you vent in your anger, and people who say “I understand”! They may say:”Hey, I don’t blame you”, “no one can walk in your shoes”, “you know what’s best”, “it will all work out in the end”… etc… etc… People who are not afraid to tell you the truth… People who are there expressing their prayers for you to heal your soul by the love of God… Only God can heal…

People have been “Holy-Spirited” into my life for me this week/month (and forever) – they have brought us food for my family post-surgery and sensed when I seriously needed a mental break… people who gave us rides, people who just stopped by to see how we were are doing… My daughter who forced me to rest and just watch TV… My boss who says “don’t worry, just get better”… Ever blessed… These are all the Holy Spirit in action… People are Holy Spirited into place “… And we are those people too!  – we can share the Lord thru our souls, not just “to our souls” (that is how the “Loved by You” song lyric goes…

The Holy Spirit can use anything and everything that moves us forward into peace…

Holy Spirit – thank you for bringing Jesus home to us today – everyday!

Peace…
