Opening to the filling and emptying of the Holy Spirit

Opening day at HIM

Good Evening, God!

After two years traveling — when the Hawaiian Islands Ministries Conference was on — we are now home — and able to go to it. Not that we were traveling for two years straight! Although it felt like it. We were just out of town during the conference.

This conference at the Honolulu Conference Center is a Time of Filling! Wonderful Christian speakers — sharing wisdom and joy. And we are together with friends from all over the islands that we seldom see. It is a time of rejoicing.

At the same time, God, I am more and more understanding my need for emptying. The speaker today at the prayer intensive suggested that we could take our breaks in silence. And our minister, David Rivers, at Central Union has been talking about the value of Silence.

Indeed, this Saturday is the monthly morning of Centering Prayer held at Central Union Church from 9:30 to 11:30. This time of concentrated and prolonged silence is so healing and nourishing to me that I shall go to that — and empty — before returning to the conference for more filling.

What a weekend! I am so thankful, God, for both the chance to empty and the chance to fill. You, who are always with us . . . always loving, caring and longing to help us . . . will be given two lovely and deeper openings to interact in me.

And now, God, I am going back to bed . . . back to sleep. I guess I just wanted to say Thank You!
