Holy Fire!

Holy Wind!

Holy Spirit!

we are the Pentecost People!

We are the daughters and sons of Pentecost!

So – dear God… tell me please?

Why was I SO exhausted? How come sharing your Spirit’s breath with those Pentecost people took me to empty and beyond? Praying I am not the only one… praying for all my sisters and brothers who shared your Spirit’s promise and then fell, completely extinguished, and needing that Holy Nap.

Dear Ones, rest in the knowledge that our Dear One has this! Rest well.

Holy One Re-energise. Re-light within us your Spirit’s breath. Breathe on us again – fill us again – so we can still be your Pentecost People

Amen

  2. I felt utterly exhausted after worship yesterday. I laid down and woke up 4 hours later. I even slept soundly during the night. Sharing the Spirit depletes all of my energy.
