In and Through
God works in and through our lives.
A simple statement, but when you really think about it, it’s mind blowing! The Creator of the universe looks out for us, hears us, and guides us.
Look back and think about all the times God’s hand has been present in your life.
God is not only a part of our lives, but He actually works through our lives. He uses us to work in the lives of others.
Saint Francis of Assisi offers a beautifully simple prayer, “Lord, make me a channel of your peace.”
Pick your metaphor, whether it be a channel, a beacon, or a reservoir — God wants us to be instruments of His light and love in our world.
But, here’s the catch — God doesn’t work where He’s not welcome. Hardened hearts are less than fertile grounds for the Holy Spirit. We must be open to and aware of God throughout our day, turning to Him always in need, in thanksgiving, and in praise.
“Come, Holy Spirit” is a phrase that we can never say too much — not only for our sake, but for those around us.
