Guided By The Spirit

If you are guided by the Spirit, you won’t obey your selfish desires. Gal 5:16


Have you felt the guiding hand of the Holy Spirit? Have you felt the peace that passes all understanding?

It is so amazing when you witness the answers of God.

In 1996, I was called to go back to school to study and become an AiM, Associate in Ministry. It’s a commissioned position in a church. It can be in any numbers of area of service within the congregation.

  • Education
  • Worship
  • Children
  • Teens
  • Seniors
  • Finances
  • Music

My first reply was I can’t do that. I have a job and a family to take care of. When am I going to have time to go back to school. After much thought and prayer I gave in and let God guide me to sign up at Trinity Lutheran Seminary for my first class.

As I was going through the theology classes I learned so much more about the church and my relationship with God. I felt the Spirit guiding me as I went through the program. Then when I walked down the aisle at the beginning of the service when I was commissioned the tears rolled down my checks. I felt God’s love and approval for what I had done.

Help your children to learn to pray then listen for an answer from God. He will always guide you on the right path.

When have you felt God guide you to something you didn’t think you could do?
