Rev Paul & Deb Phelps
"Join us as we share our life stories of what it is like to experience a Spirit-led life. With loving honesty, we share our trials of the ego and our tribulations of the Spirit. Living the Spirit-led life is simply having the willingness to ask the Holy Spirit "What would you have me do?" or "Decide for me," then, following and acting on that guidance. The more we practice stepping back and allowing His lead; the more we experience inner peace." ~ Paul and Deb

RevsDebandPaul: Never forget that the Holy Spirit does not depend on your words 6:1-2

#10 Ask all things of His Teacher, and all things are given you. Not in the future but immediately; now.
RevsDebandPaul: Say to the Holy Spirit only, "Decide for me," and it is done. 2 For His decisions are reflections of what God knows about you, and in this light, error of any kind becomes impossible. Text Chpt. 14 Sec 3 16:1-2 page 278
#11 Say to the Holy Spirit only, "Decide for me," and it is done. For His decisions are reflections of what God knows about you, and in this light, error of any kind becomes impossible.
RevsDebandPaul: You have very little trust in me as yet, but it will increase... Text 4 Sec 6 para3 page 67
#12 You have very little trust in me as yet, but it will increase as you turn more and more often to me instead of to your ego for guidance. The results will convince you increasingly that this choice is the only sane one you can make. No one who learns from experience that one choice brings peace and joy while another brings chaos and disaster needs additional convincing.
