My life has been super crazy busy lately. That is why I have not blogging forever. Balancing 4-H, school, hanging out with friends, church, and finding a job; life is a little more than chaotic. It has been stressful. When I’m stressed I do one of two things, I bake, usually desserts, or eat chocolate and drink coffee. Even though I have a insanely busy schedule, I still find the time to recharge and reboot. I attend a mid-week collegiate ministry called, Wesley. the series we are in now is on the Holy Spirit. I have learned many things about the Holy Spirit that I didn’t know before. the Holy Spirit. the Holy Spirit is not an “it”, but “he”. He is part of the third part of the trinity. The trinity is three parts: God, the father; God,the son; God,the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was sent from God to accomplish everything in us that Jesus died on the cross to do for us.
Last year I did A LOT of soul searching and question my faith, I was in a dark spot. And then God sent the Holy Spirit into my life with this verse from John 3:19-21,
“19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”
When the Holy Spirit entered my life, I was changed. there is no doubt in my mind that God is real and the Holy Spirit is working in my life.
I can recall one time at the moment when God sent me what I need at that moment.
I was Christmas shopping. I hate Christmas shopping for three reasons. 1. we usually do our Christmas shopping like 5 days before Christmas so Wal-Mart is packed. 2. it is so hard to shop for my siblings and parents. 3. shopping just stresses me out. Anyway, I was Christmas shopping and was totally stressed out. First of all I was shopping-STRESS- and second it was like 5 days’ til Christmas and Wal-Mart was crowded -more stress added to the pot. I went with my older brother, which meant I had to hide his present in my buggy- it was just too much stress to handle. My bro went to the car and I was checking out after I was done checking out I realized my brothers present was still in my cart under my jacket. that sent me over the edge and I was bawling. I in front of the vision center when this lady asked me if I was okay and if I needed anything. Long story short, I used her cellphone to call my brother and went home. I have no idea what made her stop and ask me if I needed help, only God could have told her she should stoop and ask. because of her kindness I have gone Christmas shopping every year and am reminded that there are still people who listen to God’s call.
The Holy Spirit lifted me from the darkness of that moment and I thank that sweet lady for her kindness.
I hope this blogged made sense I didn’t have time to proofread it.
May the Lord bless and keep you,
