Opportunties of the Holy Spirit

When we are open and vulnerable, when we surrender our lives, acknowledging that it it is not I am who in control but God, Himself, we begin a new awareness. This is most visible in the opportunities that present themselves through the Holy Spirit. He is the third person in the Trinity. He is fully God. He is eternal, omniscient, omnipresent, has a will, and can speak. He is alive. He is a person. His ministry is to bear witness of Jesus. It becomes our challenge then to discover through spiritual discernment where and when theses opportunities of the Holy Spirit are.

When we walk through the door and embrace these opportunities an enormous amount of Grace is poured down, that Grace strengthens our faith, affirms our mission and vocation, and thus makes us more aware to even greater opportunities. Each and every door opens to a new door and Graces flow. These opportunities occur even in the most bleak and darkest places. God is the Light that penetrates the darkness. Be diligent in examining where and when God's Graces are there for the taking, like luscious fruit hanging from the most beautiful tree.
