Jesus said, “I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever.”~John 14:16 KJV
The phone rang as I walked through the door. My sister was calling to tell me Dad was very sick. As I ran to the car, I asked the Lord to be with me and my family. I drove the eight miles to my parents’ house, praying…
The ambulance and rescue squad were already there when I pulled into the driveway. Before getting out of the car, I bowed my head, asking the Lord to provide the strength I would need to face whatever was ahead. As I opened the car door and got out, I felt a calming presence, and an inner strength and peace that I had never felt before.
My Dad died that night. Without the comforting presence of the Holy Spirit, I would not have been able to help my mom and sister through that night and the days ahead. Since then, I have continued to call upon the Lord, not just in times of hardship but every day and in every situation.
Lean on the God of all comfort and invite the Holy Spirit to fill you with peace.~Glenda Shouse, contributing author to Love Knots: Stories of Faith, Family, and Friendships
