I anticipated the dawning of the morning and cried [in childlike prayer]; I hoped in Your word. — Psalm 119:147 (AMP)
I laid in my bed for hours, and finally decided to let down the walls of my heart, pulled my bedsheets over my head and spoke to the Holy Spirit like the most perfect friend I know. We had a genuine pillow talk and He listened with all His heart.
In between sobs, I spoke like a child, vulnerable with my hurts and disappointments, the Holy Spirit listened intently. I couldn’t see Him but I believe He is there, and continued to probe me about how I felt about the incident. He was interested to know how I feel, and what I think, He just want me to let them out, to entrust Him with the secrets of my heart.
Holy Spirit, gently probed me, and I verbally shared with Him. He understood with no condemnation and comforted me. I felt waves of goosebumps, and His comforting presence.
My mind started to pound due to all the crying, and I just asked in my heart for Him to relieve the pain. Almost instantly, the pain went away.
We can share with this Helper,Comforter, Spirit of God, with our deepest desperations that we can tell to no one, as we trust Him with those secrets, at the same time, He heals our pain.
The Spirit of God is closest in the sense, most tangibly felt, by the contrite hearts, to the wounded and brokenhearted, because that’s when He is the most welcomed.
You too can welcome Him into the private space of your heart today, where no one was allowed to trespass, where it is heavily guarded with all your might, He long to be there and be your true friend. Just ask Him in, and you will receive. The Holy Spirit is like a river of water that flows, refreshes, regenerates, and drench you with God’s love.
The Holy Spirit is our best friend, in Spirit and in Truth. A real gentleman, a gentle dove, a priceless gift and a promise from Jesus before His departure to heaven, to be our companion in His place . Thank You Holy Spirit for tonight.
