Heart seeking revival
Once again, I am inspired my my blogging Christian sister, Rita. (>Here is a draft of chapter one which she recently shared of a book that she is writing<)
In the above linked article she addresses the Christian community on the subject of revival, speaks to some ideologies that arise in response to the topic, as well as gives a historical reflection and scriptures to consider. I, myself am not a deeply Bible academic student. I, myself am very content to dwell most often in matters of the heart. I, myself am often stirred by the words from Rita's heart.
Here are some thoughts that I ponder, as I join Rita in prayer for revival.
Rita reminded me that revival is from the Holy Spirit and is comprised of REPENTANCE, and spiritual AWAKENING, and it increases love and peace.
YES, that is the work of the Holy Spirit!
I want that !!
What is more important...
grievances that I have against certain faces...
hurt feelings... disappointments...
to be a vessel of love and wisdom,
filled with the Holy Spirit's fruits and work,
that I may be an instrument of healing and love,
a LIGHT in Christ,
that others may be encouraged and edified
What will I allow bigger in my life,
My FEARS and disappointments and hurts,
My GOD and my HOPE and FAITH in Him
What is more important?
What will I allow to be biggest?
What do I wish for?
What do I seek?
What do I indulge in?
What do I pursue?
LORD, God, my Father and Savior,
Let it be YOU.
