Can you hear it?

Someone calling?

Someone you know?

God's Spirit is all around, filling the world.
Comforting, warming.
This Spirit is grace and truth and peace and love. He is powerful, always in motion.
He never sleeps.
He wakes those who do sleep. His work is never done.

The Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss. He spoke "LET THERE BE LIGHT" and light appeared.

Power and energy exploded.
He lived in Saul and David, Elijah and Daniel. Dry bones came to life in the desert.

The energy was not spent.
He is persistent, relentless, empowering, encouraging.
As he drove the prophets he drives the saints.

He lived the martyrs, spoke the missionaries, taught the teachers, healed the doctors, thought the thinkers, showed the guides, led the wanderers, found the displaced.

They were all together in one place. There was a wind from nowhere and tongues of fire. It spread through the 12 and they spoke in tongues.

He is lightning and flood and turmoil.

He disturbs, discomforts, distresses, destroys.

And purifies.

He is light that cannot be quenched, heat that cannot be cooled, sound that cannot be silenced.
He is everywhere. He is in you.

He is your guide, your strength, your soul.

Are you listening?
