Where Am I Going–the First Post

Good morning and welcome.

I created the skeleton of this blog a while back and have been struggling to write this first post. Where am I going with this effort? What is God asking of me?

This morning, I realized I just need to jump in and let the Holy Spirit do the work, and so I share with you a simple prayer that I keep in my Bible and pray as a jump-start to my day:

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Oh Holy Spirit, give me stillness of soul in you.
Calm the turmoil within with the gentleness of your peace.
Quiet the anxiety within with a deep trust in you.
Heal the wounds of sin within with the joy of your forgiveness.
Strengthen the faith within with the nearness of your presence.
Confirm the hope within with the knowledge of your strength.
Give fullness to the love within with an outpouring of your love.

Oh Holy Spirit, be to me a source of light, strength and courage
so that I may hear your call ever more clearly
and follow it more generously.

Amen.

Please take a moment to read the Welcome and About pages so that we may get to know each other. In the same manner, I look forward to visiting you and gaining insight and strength for the journey.

  3. Wishing you the best with your new blog Victoria. I am starting to post devotions on my blog at least on Sunday. There are always a few words we can use to encourage others. It just starts with willingness.
