Evidence of the Spirit

My wife and I just got back from a brief Chicago get-away where we took in a baseball game at our beloved Wrigley Field. Yes, we’re Cubs fans–we can’t help ourselves. As we drove across Iowa we drove right through two big, new, wind farms. One is close to Walnut IA and another by Adair IA. From a distance, several wind generators together look like whiskers growing up out of a man’s face. But as you drive through them up close, they have a special majestic quality as they turn steadily in the wind. I couldn’t see any wind, but its evidence was manifested by the turning of these mechanical wonders. So it is with the ministry of the Holy Spirit working in my life and the lives of so many of our guests here at Open Door Mission. The evidence of the Spirit’s moving is all over them as they deal with the complexities of life. You just can’t see where The Spirit’s power comes from. The marvelous changes He makes in our lives however, is evident to all. May it always be.
