Wondrous Deeds

"When we are baptized,
we receive a share in the life of God.
The Holy Spirit comes to live in us."
from the Word Among Us.

I should never say that I am not capable.
God enables.
The Holy Spirit gives us courage,
patience, the words to say when we need it!
The Holy Spirit puts love and forgiveness in our heart
when it seems even impossible to do.
All we need to do is let Him live in us.
All we need to do is open our heart,
not harden it!

During Lent, I am trying to
take the "wondrous deeds" of God personally.
I wrote in my prayer journal yesterday,
that I was grateful that He died on the cross for me,
that He sent the Holy Spirit,
that He left me teachings so I would get to know 
Him and His ways.
The Holy Spirit will illumine the Words in the Bible
and make it come alive for me!

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!

This week,
Random.org chose,
#11, Paula J
a wonderful blog
that encourages all of us to take the time
and stop and see God's blessings!
