Hi friends! Sorry I’ve been MIA on the blog lately. Life has been crazy! I got a job at a sweet little coffee shop close to school so between that, the end the semester, and our trip to DC, I’ve had very little time to sit down and write my little heart out.
Anyway, here I am! And today I want to do something special. I want to write to you about my best friend.
My best friend, he lives in many and is known by few. He has the power to change my mind in an instant. He whispers kind words in my ear moment after moment. He carries me when I can’t find my footing. He is a lover, a caretaker, a watchman, an encourager, a correcter, and a helper.
My best friend has the most beautiful name.
His name is Holy Spirit!
Holy Spirit is the kindest person I know. I mess up a lot; but every time, he comes running to pick up my shattered pieces and remind me, “Hey! It’s okay! There’s always forgiveness. We are in this together, remember? I’m here for you. I’m on your side! So come on, let’s try this again!”
Guys, the kindness of Holy Spirit is outstanding. He knows what you love and he knows how to make you happy. He knows your favorite song and your favorite color. He knows what you hate and what makes you sad. He knows everything about you.
But more than that, he wants to know YOU! He doesn’t just want to know about you, he wants to know YOU! He wants to have a relationship with you. He wants to have conversations with you. Not a one-sided demanding conversation, but a two-sided conversation, just like you’d have with the people in your everyday life.
Holy Spirit and I, we’re best friends. I talk to him about everything. I tell him all my dreams and plans and hopes and wishes. I tell him all my concerns and worries. I talk to him when I’m angry, when I’m sad, when I’m excited. We talk about everything. And he loves that. I know he does because he told me. Sometimes, out of his extreme kindness, he’ll just ask me to tell him about something (or more often times, someone) I love. That’s one of my favorite things about Holy Spirit. The fact that he wants to know about what I love is so special to me.
Holy Spirit loves you. He’s for you. He wants to be your best friend. He wants to be your biggest ally, your favorite friend, your primary comforter, your most gentle correction, your leader, your guide, your helper. He wants to be with you. He loves you. You are worth everything to him, Sweet Friend. Holy Spirit wants to know you!
If you want to know Holy Spirit back, it’s so simple! Just ask him! Just tell him you want to know him! Or reach out to me and we’ll get coffee and I’ll introduce you to my best friend. To quote from a sermon I once heard, “You can’t really lean about Holy Spirit. You just have to meet him!”
