..God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 5:5 GNT

Your Spirit is here
As You promised,
Within, around, through,
And among us.

Your Spirit reveals,
We are truly loved,
Cherished and adored,
By the tender heart of God.

Your Spirit comes,
To make Jesus known,
To help us to love him,
And make our heart his home.

Your Spirit unites us,
In one heavenly family,
Living and working,
Together in harmony.

Your Spirit enables,
The life that we lead,
To love and serve You,
In thought, word and deed.

Your Spirit leads us,
In ways true and right,
To use our gifts and talents,
With gentleness and might.

Your Spirit warms our hearts,
Enlightens our earthly minds,
With tenderness and grace,
Transforms our daily lives.

Your Spirit connect us,
And teaches us to pray,
When we cannot find the words,
The Spirit knows just what to say.

Your Spirit assures us,
Of our eternal heavenly home,
Of unending love, joy and peace,
Praising Jesus on the throne.

The Holy Spirit comes,
Gentle as a dove,
On the wings of the eagle,
Blown by the wind of heavenly love.

Gracious God, thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit, whom You have given to us to help us live out our Christian lives and  be more like Jesus.
As we reflect, may we invite your Spirit to show us your love in our heart.  Amen
