Dear Holy Spirit – I. Believe. In. You.

This a continuation of the I. Believe. In. You. series. Prior posts: God, Jesus,Readers, Santa, and American Worker.

I thought this post was published years ago but it was not. So on this occasion of Pentacost 2020 – (May 31st) It is only appropriate this post finally be published.

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 2:1-4
English Standard Version
(ESV)

Dear Holy Spirit,

I. Believe. In. You.

I believe in Your work throughout the Bible.

I believe You are a person but have another form of existence other than matter.

I believe You are our advocate and praying for us when we do not have the words to pray.

I believe You work boldly, mightily and powerfully in our lives either through a gentle voice whispering “Widow’s Website” or whipping through our lives like a white tornado.

I believe You were at work in the lives of the men and women who had a role in the founding of this country. From Reverend Johnathan Mayhew’s 1750 sermon based on Romans 13 justifying the right of rebellion against tyrants, to the American Revolution, to the writing of the Constitution and the writing of the Declaration of Independence, and so on through out every event in our history.

I believe You can come today like a mighty rushing wind and descend upon We the People just as you descended upon the disciples in the upper room thousands of years ago.

I pray You do that today and come into people’s hearts that are protesting and rioting. Come into the hearts of police officers, mayors and governors. Come into them so mightily and powerfully that they know it is You and they kneel in thanksgiving.

Thank You Holy Spirit for the work you will do in the hearts of We the People today and every day.

Amen!

Dear American Worker – I. Believe. In. You.

This post is part of the I.Believe. In. You. series where I write about what I believe in (America, ReadersGodJesus, and Santa). While you are reading and relaxing – I am working.

12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 13 That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Dear American worker, I. Believe. In. You.

This is your day.

A day to rest, relax and spend time with family and friends at a beach, a backyard barbecue, or a local park’s picnic shelter.

I believe in you because you are not afraid to do the dirty and dangerous work such as steel mill, road construction, electrical lineman etc. You do these jobs because dirty jobs built and keeps America rolling on and on from generation to generation.

I’m a steamroller baby…I’m bound to roll all over you.

I believe you in because you do the thankless repetitive jobs such as waitress, store clerk, fulfillment center worker, and call center representative. You are the foundation of the company. Without you waiting on people, processing t-shirt orders, or answering customers questions, the company would not exist.

I believe in you because your work ethic keeps you faithfully showing up every day, even on the days when you wonder if it is worth it. Deep inside you know that even on the messy days, God is with you.

I believe in you and your willingness to serve others even after a long hard day. You understand that people sometimes need a helping hand after stumbling or falling down. Your job may bring you happiness but volunteering brings you joy.

Rush Limbaugh is not the only one with a golden microphone. 😉

I believe in you because I am one of you.

This non-morning person gets out of bed every day, stumbles across the hall and sits for 8+ hours listening to customers vent and helping delivery drivers find their way.

To all my fellow workers – enjoy your day of rest and relaxation. For tomorrow you rise again to the challenge of toiling at the dirty, routine and dangerous jobs that are the trademark of American exceptionalism.

Thank you for being the backbone of this country and a carrying the weight like a rock. May you always believe in your dreams, stand firm in your beliefs and stand tall and proud.

I. Believe. In. You.
