How can you explain the holy spirit in regards to having a relationship with our Father God to someone who is hurting? I was thinking about this on my way to work this morning . So many people have shared with me how they feel so lost, not worthy and not close to our Daddy, during the past several months. Some not even having a relationship at all. My thoughts took me to thinking about the holy spirit as being a flashlight and this what came to me.

It is in the way God has given me my heart, my life verse Jeremiah 29:11. God our Father said He knows the plans, (situations, events, outcomes, life experiences and passions, and past) he has for US. God also said he has plans to prosper Us. (we can define prosper in so many ways other than money) health, jobs, the love of family, and definitely children and grandchildren, He wants to give US hope and a future. The future to do what He calls us to do. I had to read it again to see if it says we need to first be perfect. Wow I didn't see that. Seek Him is what the next verse states, (Jesus).

So what does a flashlight have to do with the above thoughts? A flashlight can be light or dark. This is the hope and the future he sent us to use as a guide (the holy spirit). If you had the choice of going into a dark room with or without a flashlight, not knowing what was there, what would you choose? I would choose going with the flashlight, why?

I choose to seek, what God wants of me. Light....not darkness. How? Through getting on my face and knees as much as I can. Lots of tears because I am not worthy to be His princess. Prayer, asking my Abba for guidance, wisdom and the desire for obedience. With God, Jesus and His flashlight. His sword the Bible, Jeremiah 29:11 has become so real to me. My prayers for you are seek Him, cry out to him, He hears you even if you don't think he doesn't . Also remember dear ones this is not something that happens over night. I for one am imperfect but still so loved by Him. It took me a long time to come to this realization. It seems like such a simple explaination, I know we are the ones that make it hard to comprehend.

Rest in Him. Love Debi


  1. Great explanation about having a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Thank you for sharing. And thank you for your comment on my blog today. I love reading other people's blogs as well, especially those who share their insights or thoughts about God, who He is, and how He works in our lives. IDEA: We should contact someone at TRC about making the blogs of its members known to everyone so they, too, can share in the amazing things people we know are writing about. The very reason I decided to write a blog was with the hope that someone reading it might be blessed with the words God gives me for each posting.

  2. I choose the flash light. It's wonderful to see the Holy Spirit working in you. We need to be lifted up and loved. I feel that through your blog...
