I just jumped in the pool after a hot guilt walk. You know those walks you take after 3 brownies. These walks are good for me. Even though I am moving, in some weird way I am quiet and still before the Lord. Tonight, the Holy Spirit challenged me to reflect upon why I ate 3 brownies. My first reaction was ugh! But, as I neared my way back to the house, I was filled with gratitude.
It’s quiet in the pool (my kids are inside and they don’t know I am in here) besides the birds and distant cows mooing, perfect conditions to write. I have been encouraged to write everyday, so here I am. The more you do something, the better you get at it. I won’t share everyday but I am going to try to write often. 😉
I called it a guilt walk but it’s really not guilt, it’s the gift of the Holy Spirit gently correcting me. You know that preciousness that tells you 3 brownies is not a good idea, a glass of wine every night might lead to destruction, watching that show just doesn’t feel right, or that voice that says jot down the ramblings of your words and share the things of God. You get the idea, if you are a believer in Jesus, you have these moments also. The Holy Spirit speaks truth in our lives even when we don’t know any better.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 14:16, 26 ESV
So, I write tonight thankful for this gift! Thank you Lord that you don’t leave us in our mess or to try to figure it out on our own.
I have to say most of the time I hear from the Lord through studying His Word but even then the Holy Spirit helps a simple minded gal like me understand.
So tonight, it’s as simple as thank you Jesus for this gift you left with us. Thank you for gently correcting us. Help us be sensitive and quick to obey.❤️
