"Overflowing Hope" June 18, 2022

Take5 Devotional today written by Pastor Gina Spivey
Scripture to read today: Romans 15:1-13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I often think about the Holy Spirit and the idea of an “ever present hope in times of need.” When I find myself drowning in worry, despair, anxiety, stress, or loneliness, I have found meditating on the truth of the gift of the Holy Spirit is the most incredible balm. I love imagining the Holy Spirit physically walking a journey with me through each and every step of my day. Comforting me. Molding me. Leading me. I am truly never alone because of the gift that has been given to me in the Holy Spirit.
Often, if I am honest, the concept of God and even Jesus can feel daunting or too vast or far-reaching. But the Spirit of God with me? That is something that draws me into a place of true and deep peace, unlike anything the world could ever offer.
Thank God for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Imagine His peace like a dove landing on your shoulder and walking through each moment with you.
