Operating In The Spirit

There is something to be said about operating in the spirit. For those who have a spiritual life, you probably know what I’m speaking of. It’s one thing to move in your own will and purpose, but it is about listening and obeying the Holy Spirit’s leading. At least for me, it always works out better. Because I’m a Christian, I believe in the Bible or Word of God, and it tells me that my obedience is better than sacrifice. I don’t know how many times I’ve done things my way only to realize that it may not be the right way or could have gone a lot smoother had I followed the ordered steps of God. My dad and grandfather would always tell me that a hard head makes a soft bottom and that if you make your bed hard, you must lay in it. Boy, they weren’t lying!

I’m finding that for me, everything I do has a definitive purpose. Sometimes I don’t understand it or recognize the ending. But, whether it’s self-led or Holy Spirit led, there’s meaning. I did a podcast tonight that started off with a stranger I had never met. It was suggested that I might want to have her on my show because she’s a nurse and has a business, and that’s right up my alley. So, I reached out as I do by email, and she responded yes, she’d love to come on my show. We talked about nursing, COVID, and then God just took us down a whole other road. We began sharing parts of our lives, which we call testimonies, and oh, what a blessing it was to me. Sometimes the world can seem like a lonely place even when surrounded by loved ones and friends. At times you can feel empty and depleted. Sometimes it looks like you have no purpose or destiny. But then GOD happens! He just shows up, and all that has left you feeling deflated and defeated is replenished by someone God divinely connects you with. That person shares their story. Suddenly, you realize there are others like you or that you can overcome by the power of your testimony.

Tonight there was a divine connection with me, Charlene, and the Holy Spirit, and let me tell you. It was truly amazing and an incredible blessing to my soul. I felt like shouting during the podcast recording. When it was all said and done, I asked her to close us out in prayer, and she did without hesitation. I was blessed beyond words and filled with an overflow to share with you and others around me. I pray that you somehow get a rejuvenation by reading this and knowing that God is with you no matter what you go through. You are never too far away that He can’t reach you. All you have to do is call upon Him. He’s available 24/7! If anyone is feeling alone, defeated, or depleted, I pray that God touches your heart, mind, and spirit and gives you exactly what you need at this very moment. Remember, you can’t go wrong when operating in the spirit. I love you, but most importantly, know that God loves you best!

Until Next Time,

I am an RN working on my DNP, preparing to launch several aspects of my new business and writing and getting ready to publish my first book. I love to write so blogging seemed like a great way to naturally express myself and publish my journey as a nurse.

    1. Praise God and yes, I often share with transparency as God works on me and through me to share his love with the world. Some people are burned in the fire and some are built from it. I thank God for using me to spread the gospel, his love, and his word to the nations. Thank you and I pray God’s blessings upon you and yours:)
