Today is Pentacost

Click the image to return to Spiritual Sundays.

In church today, even though they didnt mention it, it is Pentacost Sunday... or 50 days f rom Resurrection Sunday.. the day God sent His Holy Spirit to come and be an indwelling presence .. our holy comforter, guide, and teacher.. actually living within us here on earth! This was recorded in the book of Acts chapter 2.... I think it was appropriate that we did sing"Holy Spirt" by Keith Getty.

Holy Spirit, living Breath of God,
Breathe new life into my willing soul.
Bring the presence of the risen Lord
To renew my heart and make me whole.
Cause Your Word to come alive in me;
Give me faith for what I cannot see;
Give me passion for Your purity.
Holy Spirit, breathe new life in me.

Holy Spirit, come abide within;
May Your joy be seen in all I do—
Love enough to cover ev'ry sin
In each thought and deed and attitude,
Kindness to the greatest and the least,
Gentleness that sows the path of peace.
Turn my striving into works of grace.
Breath of God, show Christ in all I do. 

Holy Spirit, from creation's birth,
Giving life to all that God has made,
Show Your power once again on earth;
Cause Your church to hunger for Your ways.
Let the fragrance of our prayers arise.
Lead us on the road of sacrifice
That in unity the face of Christ
Will be clear for all the world to see.

Holy Spirit, Living Breath of God

  1. This makes me yearn to return to Ireland. It's been 16 years ago since my hubby and I were there. I've always dreamed of returning someday.
    Thank you for sharing the beautiful song by the Getty's. I've long been a fan of theirs.
    Have a blessed week!
    Oh, BTW, I came over from Spiritual Sundays.


Your comments are a huge blessing and encouragement to me~
