The Holy Spirit

I am linking up for Five Minute Friday.  The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “control”. It was so good to see this crew and get back into the groove of FMF. We’d love to have you join us.  Just hop onto Twitter on Thursday evenings and follow the #fmfparty. Hope to see you there! 

The Holy Spirit she blows where she will
She goes left; we go right
Trying to control where she blows

Yet she knows better
She knows us in our uncertainty
She redirects and leads us
Where she needs 

She holds our hand
She leads us beside still waters
She controls where we need 
To be led

Down a path 
With the Holy Spirit
At my back
I lean in
Lean into where 
She is leading me.

The Holy Spirit
Is the one in control
And in the midst 
Of uncertainty and faith
I trust 
Trust that she is 
Always in control.

Because the Holy Spirit
Blows where she will.

  1. I love how you made the Holy Spirit a female! IN US! Love love love that concept. Wonderful post. Have a warm beverage for your cold ND day! Love, Jenn aka Graceglimmers from FL #23 this week at FMF

  2. I'm so grateful that the Holy Spirit leads us, even (especially?) during those times when we're uncertain. I'm so glad we never walk alone, but we are guided by our God. You made me think with this one, Tara. 🙂

  3. Tara, I love the images your words conjure in my mind, especially with these lines:

    "Down a path
    With the Holy Spirit
    At my back
    I lean in
    Lean into where
    She is leading me."

    They suggest a need for willing compliance from us and a trust in just Who has got our back at all times. Great stuff! I'm a bit slow catching up this week as my post has only just gone live. xo
