Ever encountered a situation where you thought “I just can’t talk to this person, they wouldn’t understand!” I have. Didn’t you wish there was something or someone that can make this conversation easier?
Well, it turns out there is, the Holy Spirit!
Today I randomly opened the Bible to Acts 2:7-13. This is where the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples. Those standing there marveled at their ability to understand the apostles even though each of them spoke a different language, yet they were able to communicate.
The same thing could happens in our lives as well. Sometimes, communication even with the dearest people becomes impossible. These are people that verbally speak the same language we do, but somehow we aren't able to understand each other. It is at those times (and all times) that we can ask the Holy Spirit to guide our conversations. If those who stood there with apostles could understand each other thought the Holy Spirit, then the same could happen with us. We too can marvel at the work of the Holy Spirit as He fixes the broken situation between us.
If today you don’t know what to say to someone, pray and trust in God’s mercy. The Holy Spirit will guide your heart and He will bless the conversation. Alway remember that reconciling the differences starts with God, He can open our minds to understand each other even when what is spoke is foreign to our ears.
