Inspirations of the Holy Spirit


by M. J. Joachim

We’ve all had them…

Those little voices in our heads, telling us how to think, what to do and where or where not to go…

Problem is, sometimes those voices are confusing. They suggest we engage in things we know we shouldn’t, because we’re so strong and holy, that our real purpose for doing so is to stand against sinful things, and we have the power to make a difference.

Yea, right!

We have the power to make a difference alright, boosting our ego and having a little fun in the name of lying to ourselves about our own weaknesses!

I’m not going to get into a long drawn out discussion about this. I’m simply going to state it plainly.

If the inspirations and voices in our heads are tempting us to engage in things we know are wrong, there is no excuse or justification for doing them. If we somehow have the capacity to convince ourselves that they are from God or are inspirations of the Holy Spirit, then we’re good – we’re real good…

AT FOOLING OURSELVES!!!

Cruelty serves cruelty…
Gossip serves gossip…
Gluttony serves gluttony…
Lies serve lies…
Greed serves greed…
Perversion serves perversion…
Malice serves malice…

Need I go on?

Inspirations of the Holy Spirit are easy to identify.

They are good, uplifting, loving and merciful, only directing us toward God.

It’s not about being Catholic on this one…

It’s about being intelligent!

Until next time, kind followers, I wish you every good thing!
