When tugged in a direction, listen for His voice! John 14:16; 26

Good morning everyone,
The world tells us we only need to live by our instinct and we need to pursue our dreams like a whirlwind.  The results are selfishness, greed, and recklessness if we don't have a leader.  As I embark on my trip for the week to Laporte, Indiana, I'm intrigued by learning much about the Holy Spirit.  Do you realize what the Holy Spirit does for you?  John 14:16 tells us what Jesus says:  "I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, the Holy Spirit, that He may be with you forever."  John 14:26 says, 'You have access to the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father has sent in His name, and He will teach you all things.'  Ladies and gentlemen, a couple of key words in these verses really stand out.  Forever is a really long time so we don't have to worry about losing that relationship.  Teach means to show us what is really important for us to retain because all things that He has for you are the most important!  The more we tune into the Holy Spirit, the more we will understand how we can be used for His purposes.  If we don't have the Leader, we may be successful in the worlds eyes, but we miss out on the true measure of success!  When it is all said and done, spending a life being directed by the Creator will identify how He can use even our messes and turn them into His masterpieces!
Your brother in Christ,
