A Refresh & Spark

Thankful Thursday hears praises lifting from my lips. Rain showers kiss the ground and provide a much needed drink for the plants. The showers also help to rinse my vehicle helping to clear the yellow coating of pollen.

After also vacuuming my vehicle last night and the rain clearing the way today, the word ‘refresh’ keeps running through my mind. A cleansing. Getting back to the basics. These actions allow my perspective to gain foundational grounding with a new spark of life.

Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins did the same for each of us. It cleared humanity’s understanding of living and made the perfect sacrifice for us to have a direct relationship with God through Jesus Christ. The gift of the Holy Spirit awaits each of us every moment if we choose to look for it. Jesus shares about the Holy Spirit in John 15:26: When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me.

When we receive the foundational grounding of the Holy Spirit, Jesus gives us further instruction in the next versus on what we should do with this spark of new life. And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning (John 15:27). Live a life sparked with the Spirit of truth.

Blessings to you!
