"I felt very challenged (& inspired) by being reminded again of the fact that the Holy Spirit is the gift of God – to me. I think I regained some of the wonder and awe that I had lost. I also determined to be more aware of His continued presence in my life – spurring me on to talk of my faith and the Lord Jesus Christ to others. Today made me realise that I have to put my trust wholly in the Holy Spirit’s guidance if I am going to be able to fulfil the work God has asked me to do for him"
