The Spirit of God

This week, while stuck in the house thanks to ice, I got the opportunity to watch and read lots of stories about people sharing food and water in places like Atlanta and Birmingham. As I read these stories, I was blown away at what people did for strangers when times got tough. As I talked it through with my husband, he said, "That's the human spirit!" As I thought about it, I think those stories were more the Spirit of God coming through humans who didn't even know they were being the hands and feet of God. The next time I feel that faint whisper to do something for a stranger in a tough time, I'm going to remember and thank God that it is His spirit in me and not only my own. I'm so grateful that God chooses to work through us—even when we don't realize it!
