Bedside Baptist

I missed church today with a sick child, so I went to Bedside Baptist (got my sermon on tv) today and listened to Dr. Charles Stanley.  The sermon today was on the Holy Spirit.  This is one I needed to hear, not that I do not need to hear most sermons.  I went to a support group for homeschooling moms recently and listened to an inspiring testimony from a mom who spoke of how she relies totally on the Holy Spirit in everything, including finances.   Since that evening, my thoughts have been centered around what is it that is missing in my life that I do not hear the Spirit like she does.  Is it that I am not listening?  Is there too much noise in my life that I cannot hear HIM?  Am I just too independent to want to lean on HIM?  I believe it is a combination of all the above and then some.   If you read this and you have thoughts about why a person does or does not hear the Holy Spirit, I would love to hear your comments.

    Interesting! Just recently I was reading the chapters on the same subject in my Alpha book, and it made me wonder if I had ever truly “felt” the holy spirit. I can sense the holy spirit shining right through certain people, but have never really thought that of myself. I do trust in God, I love my Savior, I try to live my life for Him. Then it hit me: I feel the spirit through worship. When I am singing a praise song that hits the nail on the head for what I’m feeling, when I see the beauty of God’s creation…that’s when I feel the spirit. Those happy tears and goosebumps that take over? That’s it! (For me, anyway!) 😉
