Day 5.  God’s Holy Spirit

The fifth thing I’m thankful for is God’s Holy Spirit.  I was reminded of this the other day as I was listening to the radio while driving to work.

The radio commentator recounted a story of a young girl at school.  She was being bullied one day in class because she always wore the same clothes.  Apparently her family was unable to afford more than one set of school clothes for her.  The bullies made her cry because of their mean and thoughtless comments.

During lunch, seven of her classmates went home.  They each went through their closets and returned to school with 15 new outfits for the little girl to take home for her own.  So that she wouldn’t be teased anymore.

What an amazing story!

This is God’s Spirit at work!  Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights. James 1:17a,b NIV  God’s Spirit leads us to act like Jesus: to love others, to help others.  He encourages us with the words of God, he shows us the good things that God has set out for us to do.  Even when we don’t know what to do or say, he guides us, always to do the will of our Father.

Thank-you, God, for Your Holy Spirit.

I could continue to praise You, God, all day for this precious gift of Yours to us!
