I started holymercy.com to share my faith with the world. What qualifies me to write these words of faith for this website and my books? My overwhelming desire and determination to get as close to the Holy Spirit as possible. Nothing else matters more to me in this world or in my life. And the closer I get, the closer I want to become.
The yearning for continual spiritual growth is my constant obsession. My quest in life is to learn as much as possible about the light of the Holy Spirit and to become one with it. Now that I have begun to learn what it feels like to have the Holy Spirit dwelling within my heart, my spirit, and my soul, there isn’t any other power that can compare to the bliss the presence of the Holy Spirit gives. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, which is given to all by Jesus Christ to learn about the mysteries of life. The more one learns, the more that is revealed, and the closer one gets to God. This automatically happens through the mystery of faith. This is only one of the many ways spiritual awakenings occur. Anyone can receive the Holy Spirit by earnestly asking for its love to come inside their souls. Learning to perceive one's own spirit occurs once one begins to learn how to communicate with the Holy Spirit. I have concluded that the definitions of faith, spirit, and love are three of the most important powers to learn about. Those powers teach us the reasons for life and about where we are destined to go when we leave this world. We are spirits, and we are souls before anything else.
Spiritual awakenings can come at any time in life. They are easy to receive when sought after. And sometimes they can happen when one least expects them. A spiritual awakening is when the Holy Spirit comes into the conscious mind, spirit, and soul and changes one’s entire outlook on life. When I received my first awakening, I became overwhelmingly filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit. The power of the Holy Spirit is a power that is so intense that when felt, one becomes undoubtedly aware that God is the greatest reality of all that exists. Awakenings make our natural senses more sensitive to the supernatural and divine. Anyone can have an awakening and continual awakening throughout life; all one has to do is ask the Holy Spirit to come into their life, and he will. With awakenings come revelations and reevaluations concerning one’s entire spiritual life.
Remaining close to the Holy Spirit allows me to continually achieve gradual spiritual growth. Which in turn fuels my fascination for more. Faith in the Holy Spirit is the life force that feeds and fuels the living soul. It’s all about gradual spiritual growth, from one level of faith to the next. Every day is a new day to get closer by learning from the day before. I have learned not to repeat my mistakes. This is a must to advance spiritually. I am consumed with constant communion with and communication with the Holy Spirit. And now, I truly know it doesn't matter if he is a trillion galaxies, realms, or dimensions away; through the mystery of faith, his presence is always within myself. He is in me, just as I am in him. There is nothing that separates us. And I am getting closer day by day by being consumed by his love. I am learning to become the person that he intends me to be. I stand before him with open arms, asking for this intense yearning that dwells within to be continually transformed. And I know that my pleas are being answered, because with spiritual growth comes an overwhelming awareness of his abundant and endless love, which waits patiently, yearning to be found by all.
I know I am having another spiritual awakening, more intense than the last one. All my senses are completely overwhelmed by the closeness of his presence. His is the only fact of life that makes any sense anymore; nothing else matters after learning of his truths. By faith, I have crossed that line to see beyond the veil, and I long for all that dwells over there. Through him and for him, my strengths continue to grow, which he promises to all who vow to follow their faith that leads towards the brightest of all lights, where his home is.
Spiritual awakenings happen when union with the celestial occurs, with the overwhelming sensation of energy and excitement never felt before. It's a life-changing experience that alters one's reality to higher supernatural extremes. Self begins to desire continuous understanding with an irresistible renewal of commitment, confidently determined to learn as much as possible of the divine. One quickly learns that faith is the lifeline to the heavens, and as faith grows, so does the strength of the bond. And as awareness grows, the light of self-awareness shares its realities because it rejoices in becoming one with its higher truth, knowing it belongs to his love that is from above.
There is a time during spiritual growth in faith when one is destined to cross a spiritual line and enter the other side, where all living eternal truths originate. Where enhancing is expressed and blessed with the light of the Holy Spirit, and convictions are put through the fire to get refined. Both situations happen with the crossing, so prepare for all that lies ahead. Your future depends on your strength to prevail. There are many spiritual lessons to learn to be able to stand strong. Each is taught different truths to continue along their own destiny. Through spiritual growth comes spiritual awakenings, and through spiritual awakenings comes even more spiritual growth. They both work together to elevate faith. And with determination, the more frequently. There are many blessings to be given to everyone. The Holy Spirit knows everyone’s weaknesses and strengths; this is how the next spiritual lesson in each person’s life is determined. One could think about spiritual growth as sequential lessons or levels of awareness where one advances to the next only after the last one that was revealed is understood and applied. The Comforter is here now to prepare everyone for a successful and fulfilling spiritual life that leads to a blessed future. Learn to glorify the Holy Spirit with all your heart, soul, and strength for the best results to continue to occur.
Once I became aware of the Holy Spirit inside my heart and soul, I knew my life was meant for only one purpose: to be his alone. I will do whatever he wants me to do. Let his will be done in my life. No matter what I must learn, I will learn all that it takes to please our Lord. And the desire to get as close as possible to him is my mission—yearning and striving with all my strength and will. This is my purpose in life. And knowing that my salvation is secure and that someday I will be there with him is his promise that he gives to all.
Keep the unknown spiritual answers that are known and unknown so far simple. Do not trouble yourself by contemplating the mysteries concerning spiritual questions and presences that cannot be explained. Such is the very definition of faith: to believe without proof in the power and the Word of God and to listen to your gut instincts and your intuition. This is how faith works; this is how faith blesses and rewards. This is how faith reveals what is next to learn. We cannot even begin to fathom the divine powers that Father God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit possess. Let alone daring to question them. Our human minds are not capable of grasping the supreme majesty of the Holy Trinity’s omnipotence, or God's ability to do whatever he wills. Omnipresence is God's virtue, by virtue of which he fills the universe in all its parts and is present everywhere at once. And omniscience, God's attribute in which he perfectly and eternally knows everything about the past, present, and future. We must learn not to question faith or the heavens; this is how eternal life reveals.
A spirit so full of innocence, how could it ever be tossed against the spiritual winds? For this must happen at any given time in one’s life to learn between right and wrong concerning spiritual light and spiritual darkness. Something that is so pure and true that is about the self-spirit must learn many truths to succeed. Do not worry; this happens to everyone who learns that spirituality is alive, eternal, and true. How could a spirit that was once so full of innocence ever find its way back to where it once was? I found the way to salvation through Jesus Christ, and that is why he came here for everyone else—to receive the same.
These words are full of encouragement for those who can read between the lines. My entire life, I’ve been trying to get to the core of these truths that dwell deep within my heart. Throughout my life, I have been sidetracked from these truths repeatedly. So much time was lost but never really wasted because I was determined to learn. This taught me well—to not judge, to keep my spirit under control, and to never fight unless to defend. I have learned how to forgive and forget. And I will always be learning how to love and be loved. Learning spiritual truths is a process that never ends, and this is one reason for my own eternal life.
