You remember it vividly when you first experience the presence of our Heavenly Father. The first time for me was right before the birth of my first daughter, Caitlin. It was the day that I gave my life over to Him. The years following were full of ups and downs, being on fire for God and sliding back into self (as is human nature). Looking back on those years, I don’t think I can really recall experiencing that feeling again. Until now.
For any of you who may not be familiar with the story, you can catch the full version here (http://holyghostbumps.com/2011/03/06/in-the-beginning-god-created-this-blog/). To paraphrase it, the presence of the Holy Ghost was all over me when He led me to begin writing HGB. Over the first couple of months, every time I felt connected to God’s word and what He wanted me to see, I would get these “tears and tingles”…goosebumps from God. I’ve found that when you become plugged into what the Savior wants you to do in life, you become even more aware of His presence around you and in all things. Which brings me to this post.
I’ve been under conviction lately that I’m to share with my readers stories of their own “goosebumps from God” moments. So, here goes the call for those stories. If you feel led to share how the Holy Ghost has made His presence felt in your life, how God has shown you He has you wrapped in His loving and secure embrace, please drop me a line. Your story is your own, and I’ll only reprint them with permission. I have no idea where God wants to take this, but if I’m to remain faithful to what He’s doing in my life, I have to put this out there.
I pray that by sharing your tales with me, and then on HGB, we can bless as many people as we can virtually reach with God’s glory, grace and faithfulness.
To submit your story, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. May He move through you, in you and around you today! 😀
*Note: Please be sure to let me know if it’s okay to reprint your story. Also, send the story via email instead of as a comment post. I’ll be posting them on the Project HGB page. Thank you :).
