This is me writing on my own will and without prayer to be led by the Holy Spirit when I write. I am describing a scene I am watching outside my window today.
” Large trees blowing in the wind. Bright green leaves shading the boys playing basketball. The grass is growing taller after the fresh drops of rain fell down earlier in the day.” (After this my mind wondered as I was sidetracked by the kids playing.)
Next, I prayed to God for the Holy Spirit to write through me as I put the words down on paper. It is only a few minutes later and the kids are still playing basketball outside.
“Bodyless wind whispering silently as it brushes by your ear. “I love you, I give you life,” it speaks. It surrounds your soul with tender love, ultimate compassion, and vital protection. This whispering wind is more than something that you feel, it’s more than something seen moving the earth. It is the all encompassing powerful mighty hand of God blessing you with each breath it lets out as it whispers to your soul. “
There you go! This is the difference between being filled with yourself and your own knowledge and being filled with the Holy Spirit. Next time you do something who are you going to ask for help? Or will you do it on your own will?
