Planning for an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit

Planning for an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit

Many of you know that my dad passed away a couple of months ago. Since then, life has been a blur. And, I'm not talking about a little blur. I'm talking about a Texas-size, humongous blur! Planning for Dad's funeral, moving all of his belongings to our garage, conducting an estate sale, beginning the process to put our home on the market so that we can move to Florida (decluttering, initial packing, staging), working with multiple showings (having the house immaculate, leaving and being gone for the showings), negotiation with the potential buyer (going on today), traveling to Florida to...

And, while reading the numerous Excel spreadsheet entries, one phrase from one particular quotation jumped off of the page. It was just as if I had never read this quotation or at least this particular phrase before. (Again, I ask. Am I normal?) Here's the quotation.

Have I Got A Deal For You!

Have I Got A Deal For You!

I know that the following will sound like the opening words from a late-night infomercial to sell you some miraculous, never-before-seen wonder product. But, I'll risk you forming that opinion so that I can once again make a truth about the Holy Spirit super easy to understand. Here goes... "Constantly tired? Ready for change? Want people to notice a new you? Bored with life? Discouraged? Is your spiritual growth at a standstill? HAVE I GOT A DEAL FOR YOU!" Okay. Enough already of the infomercial spiel. Informercial or no infomercial, these problems are all too real. Perhaps you are...

Good News for the Know-Notters!

Confused? Feel like your brain is in a thick fog? Have limited details? Got conflicting information? Overwhelmed? Have I got good news for you! Well, really it's not my news. It's actually found in Romans 8:26-27. According to these two verses, you are smack-dab (that's Texas talk) in the PERFECT place for some of the most accurate, powerful, right-on-target, can't-miss-the-will-of-God praying that you have ever done. Really? Really! "In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit...
