Okay, I finally started a draft after posting how things will look a little different, and then our computer stopped working. Once we finally got it fixed and back home, my draft was gone. So I'm just going to go back to were the Spirit leads me and go from there.
Just a reminder - this is going to look a lot less pretty
and will look nothing like your normal blog .
Back a couple months ago I joined the Prayer Team at church and my first experience was definitely full of the Holy Spirit - let me explain.
At the end of our church service, we have a song where the Prayer Team comes up and is available if anyone wants prayed with or for during the song. First of all, I will say, I was incredibly nervous the first time, not knowing what would happen or who would come up but I trust that God will guide me to have the right response to the Spirit.
Okay so one Sunday there was a lady who walked up during the song "Come to the Alter" and as she came up, another woman from the Prayer Team went up to join her. As they were praying .. I felt the Holy Spirit telling me to just go up and sing over her... "Sing over her?" I replied .. "That seems silly." but I felt the spirit say it again .. This time I listened.
I walked over behind the two ladies praying & immediately both my arms went straight out to my sides. As I continued to sing, I was overcome with grief as if I could feel her pain.. I started sobbing as I could barely sing anymore. The spirit of darkness was so strong, I felt like God used me as hedge of protection around these girls as they prayed.
As the Service ended, I was so full of the Spirit, I was almost shaking & my heart was racing but it was the most amazing experience as I could feel the Holy Spirit work. I wish I had more interactions with God & with others like that more often!
God is so so so unbelievably good!
love you all,
