The Altar

I was walking home in the cold, looking for opportunities.

The sign was lit up, so I went down.

And I got to pray for an hour in front of an awesome map that prompted so many prayers.

Being led by the Spirit is awesome. This was a good time. It is good to listen.

Go pray there.

Shoveling

After more deliberation – and I’m pretty sure the Spirit’s prompting – I’m not going to let Beth Moore do the teaching for me. I’m going to dig deep and do this thing myself.

That sounds awfully selfish and elitist, doesn’t it.

I knew I was sort of relying on this new Bible Study I found to do the dirty work for me – help someone else grow in their knowledge and relationship with God. I will let the study teach and grow me, but use it only as an aide in my teaching. Now I have this awesome opportunity to dig deep and be led by the Spirit into more truth, more growth, and more… just everything, including frustration. I foresee this being very hard; the only way I can think to do this so I don’t miss anything is do find all the verses in the Bible that talk about the Holy Spirit and study them in context. And I really have no clue how to organize all this information. I feel like I’m going to be writing a huge research paper, and what I need to be culminating in is a Bible study. Maybe my friend I’m sharing this with can just come along for the ride; this project won’t be done in 2 weeks 🙂

But the biggest thing I want out of this is real, live application. I was suddenly reminded of the old worship song by Michael W. Smith,

“More love, more power
More of You in my life
More love, more power
More of You in my life.

I will worship You with all of my heart
And I will worship You with all of my mind
And I will worship You with all of my strength
For you are my Lord
You are my Lord.

More faith, more passion
More of You in my life
More faith, more passion
More of You in my life.”

That’s not all the lyrics, but that’s all I really want out of this study. For me, but mostly for her and anyone else I come in contact with.
