My Friend, The Holy SpiritNov 15, 2023
In my recent podcast Divine Discoveries, I shared the abundant connections that God has placed in my life over the past six months. One of those connections is Joanne Moody. In the podcast, I explained how reading Joanne’s book encouraged me to take more risks in sharing my faith. Her book, Everyday Supernatural: Experiencing God’s Unexpected Manifestation in Your Life, challenged me to look outside the box of how I walk with the Holy Spirit.
I was honored and blessed to have a conversation with Joanne about the Gift of healing and the Holy Spirit in this week’s show, The Gift Healing with Joanne Moody.
As a cradle Catholic, I have learned over and over about the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I have attended conferences over the years where the Holy Spirit has been active and present, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized that the gifts of the Spirit are an important part of my faith journey. A part of my faith journey that I have neglected. In the past, I’ve taken inventories to see which charisms or gifts God has blessed me with, but I realized that I often limit these gifts and use them sparingly.
These limitations often keep me stuck in fear and doubt instead of stepping out in faith to serve the Lord.
What I have begun to understand is that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are abundant and freely given to help build up the Kingdom of God. There are layers and layers of gifts available to each one of us. As one gift is unwrapped and put into action, there is another gift waiting to be discovered. The Holy Spirit is constantly inviting me into a closer relationship so that I can magnify Christ with my life. Following the promptings of the Holy Spirit with courage and determination is what the world needs right now. There is so much chaos and division, but with the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit you and I can give witness to God’s abundant goodness. Together, we can be a reflection of God’s love and mercy in the darkness.
How well do you know the Holy Spirit?
Are you willing to step our in faith to share your love of Christ?
How often do you allow God to use you to build up his Kingdom? Do you believe that you aren't qualified?
