God knows what each one of us is dealing with. He knows our pressures. He knows our conflicts. And He has made a provision for each and every one of them. That provision is Himself in the person of the Holy Spirit, indwelling us and empowering us to respond rightly.” — Kay Arthur
We long to receive comfort, support, guidance and answers to prayer. God has not left us bereft. We have the Holy Spirit indwelling our hearts by faith. His continual presence reassures, leads, guides, teaches and speaks to us in ways we can understand. The prayer/poem below explores some of the ways we can seek His help.
Talk to our hearts Sing Spirit— Sing of the soul’s birth, it’s rightful place in this world, sing in whispers, in clouds, and lullabies, in every tree, plant, person, ocean, and sky. Sing of secrets that lie out of reach concealed far from prying eyes, covertly hidden in plain sight but revealed to the faithful and wise. Bring us messages direct from heaven, written in holy script, which we receive when we read your wondrous words with humility. Talk to our hearts, talk strong, talk soft, talk much, as you slowly break apart our hardened souls of stone where you are now enthroned. We long to hear a comforting word, an answer to prayer, guidance and confirmation, reassurance, hope and encouragement to give us courage to start again. Though we might not listen hard enough, or even rebel and go our own way sometimes, don’t ever give up speaking to us each and every day of our lives. © joylenton
