Maniacal Monday Monologue (of sorts)
How is the Holy Spirit and it's presence in your life? Do you see Him regularly? How is your interaction with Him? Do you have a relationship with Him? Not "it" but Him? As I've begun to process through this, I've recognized that I basically seek the Holy Spirit out in my job as a pastor/intern. I consult the Spirit when I am working with students, prepping for a class or message, or simply working through a blog post. And I consider that a terribly misunderstanding and misuse of the Holy Spirit of GOD. I recognize a number of moments that I have allowed the Spirit of God to penetrate my private life, but I haven't given Him license to work in my life on a regular basis. What about you?
So for me that requires a more disciplined life that gives the Spirit of God the room to work in a daily way that changes the way that I look at my world. That requires me to take steps to put guidelines and parameters that make my life more disciplined in the areas that are most important. What steps do you need to take to see the Spirit of God come into your life more?
