His Promise Blesses

From John 14:15-16:  “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.  And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever.”

Bringing light to follow

Christ’s promise comes with grace

Overcoming life’s doubts

Holy Spirit in place

 

Responding to life’s needs

Hope filling empty hearts

Interceding for Christ

Holy Spirit imparts

 

Pouring into others

Love shared across man’s world

Swelling as inner strength

Holy Spirit unfurled

 

Healing our brokenness

Steadfast love guiding lives

Gathering righteous faith

Holy Spirit’s “high-fives”

 

Trusting in Christ-filled light

God’s Word proclaims, our Rock

Wandering no longer

Holy Spirit unlocks

From John 14:26-27:  “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.”

American Christian singer and songwriter, Francesca Battistelli, sings “Holy Spirit.”  While I have heard this song several times in Sunday worship, its lyrics always reach and out touch me.  I hope they will speak to you as well.
