f you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’ (Luke 11:13)
The Holy Spirit guides us into the truth (John 16:13) about ourselves, about others, about life. Part of that truth is coming to understand more fully who I am and my giftedness. The Holy Spirit also sustains us through the difficult times that come. The Holy Spirit is an extraordinary gift – and all we have to do is ask! Such is the love from our God who loved each of us into being.
In this Easter time, I come to realise that living life to the full is not a project I can achieve alone. It is through prayer and reflection that I grow in self-knowledge – and grow in my understanding of my limitations and thus my need of support – of the strongest kind! The Holy Spirit will guide me to see the gifts God has placed in me and help me to use them to build community.
I’ll be on leave for a few weeks – so I’ll catch you later!
Wishing you peace and all good
Thanks Patrick, enjoy the break!
