The Holy Spirit Is Real

The Holy Spirit Is Real

Before Jesus left earth, he promised the Holy Spirit to live in us continually. He is the comforter, who would bear our burdens, urge us to pray, or pray for us.

When my husband Bill was sick with leukemia, I was so busy, but I could feel the Holy Spirit praying constantly until Bill passed away. He knows our worries and feelings.

The Holy Spirit is God. He lives in you. You are never alone. When you struggle with feelings of guilt, pain, shame and depression, he is there to comfort you. When you’re down to your last ounce of strength, he lifts and carries you.

As soon as you embrace Christ, the Holy Spirit resides in you. He’s not a ghost that haunts churches. He is real. He is God. He is there for you!
