Do you ever find yourself wishing you could speak face to face with Jesus? As wonderful as that would be, while He was here in a physical body, Jesus was only available to one person or one group of people at a time. He said it was actually better for us that He leave so that He could send us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is now available to each of us 24/7, and He desires to walk with, guide, and work through us on a regular basis. However, our ability to experience the fullness of what He offers…
The journey of discovering all that God is, much less what He has for us, is blurry. The engagement of the Holy Spirit can be just that – blurry. Maybe that’s because He’s depicted as fire, a dove, a wind, and other things in the scripture, so it’s confusing. He has some explicit purposes in our lives that we don’t want to miss out on though!
Our nature is to believe we’re the most important person in the room, or at any given table. We’d all love to be. If we’re not careful we can find ourselves devaluing both the table and the host though. That may mess up our human experience sometimes, but how does that look in relation to God? In relation to His invitation to the table?
Being prepared for what is ahead in our lives is more than just the things we learn. What if our ability to live in the fullness of what we’ve been designed to live in is as tied to those around us as it is to our own abilities or knowledge?
For many of us ‘life is good’! For so many thought, it just isn’t. While we enjoy the goodness though, have we become unaware, or worse, unconcerned about ’the others’? What might our own life be like had we not been born where we were, or lived where we did?
Life is full of battles. Often the people that we are closest to are the ones we can find ourselves battling. However, the battles most putting us at risk are the ones we can’t see. They are the ones that we can find ourselves ill-equipped to fight too.
