'I firmly believe that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and self-seeking and every thing that is contrary to God's law, the Holy Spirit will come and fill every corner of our hearts; but if we are full of pride and conceit and ambition and self-seeking and pleasure and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God; and I believe many a person is praying to God to fill them when they are full already with something else. ~Dwight Lyman Moody
As we approach Pentecost Sunday this coming weekend it is good to get in touch with is important and essential in our lives. Sometimes because of routine and busyness our minds are else where. With so many distractions all around us, it is easy to loose focus. Pentecost Sunday is all about emptying out what is useless, petty and negative. We in turn are called to be open, honest and allow the Spirit of God to touch our lives. Sometimes it can be hard to put all this into words. But endless words are empty and hollow unless we are first open to God making a real and positive difference in our lives.
