Welcome Holy Spirit: #2

As I found myself humming and singing last Sunday’s song, “Breathe on Me, Breath of God”,  the lyrics became prayerful.  I was asking to be filled with life anew, breathed on until my heart is pure, made wholly God’s, and given eternal life with Our Father. Music can be so powerful in that way. I also happened to have a devotion that was based on Psalm 51:10-12. In it David is asking God for a right spirit, for Him not to take His Holy Spirit away, and to uphold him with His free spirit. Oh, that we might all welcome God’s spirit into our midst and our lives.

Scripture:

1 Corinthians 6:19  Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received from God? You are not your own,

Acts 9:31  So the church throughout the whole of Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was edified and walking in the respect and reverential fear of the Lord and in the consolation and exhortation of the Holy Spirit, continued to increase and was multiplied.

Song: “Holy Spirit, Thou Art Welcome” written by Dottie Rambo and David Huntsinger

Holy Spirit Thou art welcome in this place
Holy Spirit Thou art welcome in this place
Omnipotent Father of Mercy and Grace
Thou art welcome in this place

Lord in Thy presence there’s healing divine
No other power can save Lord, but Thine
Holy Spirit Thou art welcome in this place
Thou art welcome in this place

Holy Spirit Thou art welcome in this place
Holy Spirit Thou art welcome in this place
Omnipotent Father of Mercy and Grace
Thou art welcome in this place

Fill all the hungry and empty within
Restore us, oh Father revive us again
Holy Spirit Thou art welcome in this place
Holy Spirit Thou art welcome in this place

Songwriters: HUNTSINGER, DAVID / RAMBO, DOTTIE

About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.

    In 2014, Manmin members smiled and laughed a lot, and sometimes shed lots of tears because they realized how the shepherd had sacrificed himself for them.

    Bless and power of God in abundance. Visit http://www.manminnews.com/
    Second Coming of Jesus Christ is in a short time.
