The Holy Spirit’s Symphony

“There are infinite ways in which the Holy Spirit gently guides our hearts to take action, but like any good musician, when we learn to practice reading the music of our own symphonies … we become more equipped to recognize and carry out His direction.”

Please welcome Sonya Mack, our newest writer here at The Well. In her first blogpost for us, Sonya draws parallels between a beautiful symphony and the work of the Holy Spirit within each of us. 

MIRROR: My Inner Responses Reflect On Relationships

The glass mirror as we know it today is only about 200 or so years old. For most of human history it was only in still water where one could see what one ‘looked’ like. Which begs the question: at any moment, do you know what you ‘look’ like? Not identifying features such as the shape of your nose or color of your eyes … but do you know what you ‘look’ like to others? When others see your face, do they want to approach you or avoid you? When others see your face, do they feel welcomed and loved or not so much? When God looks at you, does He see His own Light reflected back? Heidi Lepper Barrett explores in her latest post for The Well’s blog.

The Invitation of The Gospel: Do You Really Accept It?

“In the end what we all want is to have inner peace so we can live out the Gospel. But it’s pride and shame and our inner thoughts that actually promote most of our suffering and distress. We have been conditioned from day one that there is in fact something to pursue that is greater than God himself.” Heidi Lepper Barrett shares on how pride and shame create havoc with our identity as daughters of God.
