  1. (in)courage friends,
    So many times I’ve asked God to give me a “sign” indicating what I should do, which path to take, go left or go right? This is a beautiful reminder that we have, within us, the Holy Spirit who KNOWS the mind of God. He is our comforter, our counselor, our guide in life. Maybe we need to be still and look inward and ASK for His leading vs. continually looking outward for a “sign.” Food for thought…
    Sunday blessings,

  2. In Courage,

    This world can seem daunting at times. So many choices tantalizing our senses. It’s hard to know which way to go. When faced with trials or questions about our next move all we need to do is pray. God will gently show us the path He has for us. The Holy Spirit within us will guide us on that path. We need not fret or be anxious. Don’t listen to the world’s words. Take time each day & be with God. Trust that He has your best interest at heart. Listen for Him in still small voices. You may have to shut the world out for a while. I know it will be worth it in the long run. Don’t worry about getting off track now & then. It happens to everyone. Just turn back around & ask God’s Holy Spirit to put you back on the right path.

    Blessings 🙂

  3. So many times I wanted to do something I knew it was not right for me. At the time if I had done I ended up in big mess. I thought at the time it was right. God through his Holy Spirit. Said in a voice Dawn no don’t go there don’t do that. I thought at the time it would be ok. No harm in it. No harm to watch that on television that programme. But little did I know at the time what evil I could have been putting into my mind that was not of God. Plus another thing going to that show that a good friend wanted me to go to that is not saved. I had to in a nice way say no. Not my thing. So as not to hurt them. If I told them. It full of evil they think I lost the plot. I know God speaking to me through his Holy Spirit in both of theses sustations. As clear as bell. In my mind I got. The words. My Child don’t have anything to do with show. I knew right away it was Gods Spirit speaking too me. I am glad in both of theses times. I listened to Gods Holy Spirit. As if I had not. I would have been filling my mind with Ungodly stuff. God would not have been pleased with me. As my Friend when she came back from the show told me all about it. I was glad I was not there as none of it was of God. Everything of the world ans the worlds ways. The Television programme was Harry Potter. It had alot of magic in it and evil. So I am glad I didn’t watch it. I was just going to watch it for nosie sake. To see why Christian should not watch it. Or have anything too do with it. But when I found out why. I am glad I listened to God talking to me through his Holy Spirit. Didn’t fill my mind with the evil. As God wouldn’t want me too. I know God would want me to fill it with praise music and his word. Plus giving him thanks always. That is why God gave us his Holy Spirit to guide us the proper way to live for him as Christians. Which I am very glad of. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx
