My reflection is from Living Faith
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name – he will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you. John 14:26
“The presence of the Holy Spirit has become increasingly personal to me. I am learning to sense when I am living, loving and working in alignment with the Holy Spirit or attempting to go on my own. The aligned way feels like empowerment, clarity and confidence. The other way feels scattered uncertain and draining.
Before I work each morning, I light a candle on my desk as a symbol of my quiet invitation and invocation of the Holy Spirit. I asked the Spirit to fill me, to be present in every conversation and connection with my clients, in words I speak or write. In this way, I become a conduit for a power greater than myself. At days end, I blow out the candle, giving thanks for the ability to use my gifts in higher service. And I ask the Holy Spirit to take anything from me that is not mine to carry, leaving all outcomes in God’s hands.” Kristin Armstrong
Each time before I do the reflection or send a meme to friends, I ask the Holy Spirit for guidance.?
