Sabbath Moments - Come Holy Spirit

 Sabbath Moments is a weekly meme hosted by Colleen at Thoughts on Grace. These are moments when we let go and let God - finding grace in the present moment. They can be planned or may come upon us by surprise. I've been very surprised this week by the depth of the Holy Spirit's work in me. There's a lot of spiritual healing going on in my life and I'm trying to be open to God's work. I've often read that when someone receives a physical healing it's usually because a spiritual healing has taken place also. From my experience of the past few weeks I'm inclined to believe that this is true. Part of it may be because of the Life in the Spirit Seminar I've been attending. I went many years ago but I am getting far more out of it this time around. The testimonies have been incredible. I am touched by the faith of the people there. They are powerfully gifted in the Spirit. I started going because I wanted to learn more about the Holy Spirit and I have to say that this is happening, that's for sure. Before the seminar last night there was a Mass and the priest said something that struck my heart. A rock glorifies God because it is a rock, a tree because it is a tree, a human glorifies God because he is a human. We do not glorify God by trying to be something we are not; we glorify God by being 100% human. I immediately thought of Mother Mary and realized that this is true. After the Mass prayer teams were set up and these teams prayed for the release of the Holy Spirit within us. This really works! No wonder Jesus said "Where 2 or more are gathered..."

Thank you, Jesus, for faith-filled Christians!
