Bad Day And The Holy Spirit

Bad Day And The Holy Spirit

Those days where everything is going wrong, and in the chaos, a still small voice is heard, or someone posts a scripture you needed right at that moment. It could be from a devotion, you’ve read during your quiet time.  I’m sure we’ve all experienced this.

Today was one of those days for me. My twins have been having a rough time with meltdowns with some schedule changes, which by the way, don’t go over well with those on the spectrum. You might feel like you can’t handle much more. I know I’ve been there. Tears may be flowing down your cheeks and you’re ready to throw in the towel.

God is there. In. The. Middle. It’s hard to remember that, so hard, because at times you might want to shake your fist and say, “why me? Make this stop.” “Why aren’t you answering me or our situation?” WE want answers fast and not to wait, but sometimes God has us wait as He’s working behind the scenes. Man is that hard to remember or maybe even to come to terms with.

John 14:26 NASB

26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name,He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

Romans 8:26 NASB

26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for uswith groanings too deep for words

God hasn’t left us alone or on our own. He’s given us His Holy Spirit. Cling to God in these hard times. I know it’s hard on bad days , but God is there even when we don’t feel Him.

  1. Thanks, Allyson. This happened to me just this morning. I’ve been fretting over my sons’ well being–one sick with fever, the other away at college. When I sat down for my morning devotion, the first words on the page spoke volumes: “Entrust your loved ones to Me. Leave them in My protective care.” So timely. God’s Holy Spirit spoke so vividly through those words.

  2. This is a wonderful post, Allyson! It reminds me as I continue to struggle through the loss of my mom and my husband within a few short months of each other that God is there, He does care, and He is extending His comforting hand. Thank you!

    Thanks Allyson, The Holy Spirit has spoken to me through God’s Word so many times. He speaks right to the area where I need encouragement. I loved your post!

    Allyson, May God’s strength be yours during these days of new schedules and meltdowns and readjustments. May it be a blessing to you to know that God’s Spirit used your struggle to bless others.

    So true, Allyson. I appreciate that reminder. We always have the Holy Spirit, & He’s more certain in our lives when the need is the greatest. God bless you.
