Holy Ghost Moments

Spiritual Purge

I was reading my Bible when I came across the Story of King Asa. Even though I’ve read it before many times, the Holy Spirit highlighted two verses. I just couldn’t take them out of my mind. Every single time that God wants to deal with me in a very personal and profound way, he would stir my spirit with one passage from Scripture. 2 Chronicles presents us with the Story of King Asa. His account is compelling as the Bible portrays him as a man who loved God and acted accordingly. He did what many wouldn’t dare. He stood…

Devotion

fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer… Rom. 12:11b-12 NASB   My time in Baton Rouge finally came to its end. I knew that eventually, the internship would come to its end. What I did not expect was the feeling of longing that started to invade my heart.

This would be my third week in America. One might think that the process of speaking your second language will turn on automatically. Well, it is not that simple. Our brain holds the ability to identify a foreign language and classify it as known or unknown. Generally speaking, it doesn’t take me too long to switch from Spanish to English. My ears and my eyes recognize the langue immediately. The…

Rápido para Escuchar

Escuchar no es lo mismo que oír. Podemos oír infinidad de sonidos, ruidos, voces, idiomas, etc. Pero escuchar es otra cosa. Ya tengo dos semanas en este país. Uno pensaría que el proceso de hablar en tu segundo idioma se da en automático. No es tan simple. En parte, el cerebro tiene esta habilidad de identificar el idioma y catalogarlo como conocido o desconocido. En general no me cuesta mucho trabajo hacer el switch al inglés. Mis oídos, y mis ojos lo reconocen inmediatamente. El problema es con el habla. Por alguna razón me toma más tiempo poder hablar inglés…
