Do you want to dance? Day 3.

Have you started a Covid-19 journal yet? If not, start there. Go and order a fancy journal on Amazon if that would motivate you. I usually just grab an old notebook. Staple some loose paper together if that’s all you have. After this is all over, you will be glad you kept a journal during this time.

If you are just joining us, make sure you read yesterday’s post. Each day this week will build on each other.

We are in the midst of exploring the different roles of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is your helper.

“I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you.” John 16:7

I used a different translation of this verse in my blog post. The NIV bible uses the word “advocate” instead of “helper”. Other translations use the word “comforter” or “counselor”.

The original Greek word is ‘paraclete’, from the verb parakaleo, to call alongside.

Journal question:

Why do you think this word is translated differently in different versions of the bible?

The Holy Spirit gives hope.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13


I don’t know about you but I am struggling to find hope right now. Things are tough. But even in times of ease, true hope only comes by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Journal Question:

How do we tap into that hope?

More tomorrow,

Lisa
