In My Weakness
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
It's wonderful that when we get down in our daily life and we just cannot pray, we have someone to intercede for us. I remember alot of times while going through things in my daily living not being able to pray but being able to just kneel and cry JESUS. He can hear our hearts and the pain we go through. He can whisper to us in our time of need and He can hold us while we are down and help us cry out. The Spirit in us is our Helper and He can guide us and lead us to rest.
Even now while I'm going through so much, as my family try's to fall apart, the Holy Spirit comforts me. At times I can hear Him in my heart saying all things will come to pass, this will pass to. I don't know where I would get the comfort I needed if it wasn't for the Holy Spirit. Yesterday was a very hectic day for me.
It seems like nothing was going to end. Nothing was going to be alright. But as I went into the bathroom where I do most of my praying on my knee's, tears we're falling down and all I could do was lay in the floor and let His Spirit hold me. Times get tough, but we as Christians have someone to hold us, have someone to hold onto, and have love when no one seems to love us.
Most of the time I write from experience. I write what I live, I write what I have been through, what God has done in my life. I write to hear Him, and to help others with the same things I have been through. It took me all day yesterday to really know in my heart that the Holy Spirit is my comfort, no matter my feelings or my down falls, He is there, even when I don't see Him, or even feel Him He is there, because in my weakness He is strong..
