The Holy Spirit is wild

6 posts in this topic

The Holy Spirit is wild

We are one, though it is often hidden,

we create ripples by our actions,

all of them it is always so,

we help others or hinder them

by our thoughts, deeds and what we don't do,

we plant seeds in the souls of others

that will take root and produce fruit,

we touch others, and we are touched,

we are healers and those who wound,

lovers or haters,

diving into mystery

or playing it safe and staying on the shore,

there is no standing still,

we are moving forward,

or backward,

the human heart is deep,

it seeks the one thing necessary,

though the way can be lost,

yet we are pursued by grace,

and all human hearts when they pray

are a gateway for all of mankind,

for Christ Jesus is closer to us than our skin,

our bowels, our bones, and we are loved.

So fear not, move forward,

dive in and do not let fear deter you,

trust is hard, but we cal all make an act of trust,

even if things seem otherwise.

It is all about love,

the living water

feeds the heart,

the fruits of the spirit is love,

love of self and love of others,

one step at a time,

get up over and over again,

just move, trust, deepen faith.

God is not owned by anyone,

he speaks through all,

the Holy Spirit is wild

can't be tamed:

Thanks be to God.

Hiya Mark, can I just ask.... What knowledge/experience do you have of the Holy Spirit?

That which urges me on in spite of doubt, that inner seeking after more than what this life can give me, the experience of inner peace and fulfillment that happens at times when such things would be impossible.

The desire to love my enemies even though I fail often but never give up…. The patience to get up when I do not live up to what the Spirit calls me to and the wounding that comes from the infinite fire of God's love, which leads to deeper healing.

In Catholic thought, the Holy Spirit is the love that exists between the Father and the Son, equal to and eternal. The push for me to become gentler with myself and others and the growth of love of myself and all that is within me, which leads to love, compassion and empathy for others, is the Holy Spirit praying within me. Without the Holy Spirit, I doubt I would even want to do that.

Because many seek what I seek, I would say that it is the Holy Spirit alive and well in their hearts. Christians, I feel make the mistake of trying to tame the Spirit when in fact the Holy Spirit has always been active in the evolution of mankind....though we have on some level the freedom to choose to be open or not, it seems that more often than not we are not, hence the hatred, wars, and failures in the process of becoming more human.

Mark, reminds me of that Garth Brooks song, The River: "don't you sit upon the shoreline and say you're satisfied, choose to chance the rapids, dare to dance the tides." I must have started my day with this song for about a year, it inspired me and gave me courage through one of the lowest points in my life. Hope you like it. http://www.jukebo.com/garth-brooks/music-clip,the-river,sf0us.html
