Thought for Today


When our relationship with God seems distant and disconnected, this may be because the Spirit's conviction has been repeatedly brushed aside.  The longer this goes on, the harder it is to see the root of the problem.  Thankfully, we can pray and ask God to show us our sin.  If we turn away from sin and recommit ourselves to Him, God will forgive us and revive the power and influence of His Spirit within us. - Jennifer Benson Schuldt  

God, show me how I have resisted Your Holy Spirit.  Help me to listen when You speak.  I want to be right with You again.   Yielding to the Holy Spirit leads to right living.    From Our Daily Bread
