#thankfulchallenge Day 23: Helper

John 16:7 NKJV
[7] Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

People who know me know that I am not the emotional type, rather level headed, (usually) cool as a cucumber like my dad. I think I am quite rational, I don’t show my emotions much.

But when Holy Spirit touches me, tears will just flow. God’s presence is just so strong at times that it goes beyond any of my rational explanations. When I was at Christmas musical yesterday, I was just overwhelmed. Holy Spirit also allowed me to sense just a little bit of what the hurt are going through. And the extreme love God has for all, and how He has promised them His best. So why is it that when I pray, I pray so timidly, as though things will not happen??

I also believe Holy Spirit leads and guides me in different aspects of life, and when I am convicted of my actions, I sense His presence in my life. As much as those moments sometimes smart the wounds in my heart, I am thankful Holy Spirit is always with me.

Forced smile haha but today I went to my new work place and met new colleagues. A little apprehensive because they all dress well and are well made up and I felt erm. Old and 黄脸婆ish. I also found out I have to work weekends and working hours are not quite kid-friendly though flexible (i.e. can start late but won’t end early).

BUT. I know that Holy Spirit is with me. I know that God placed me here and with this, I have assurance. Thank You God for I know I have a Helper right beside me.
