  1. Becky,
    I work with women in my church and have wanted for a long time, to have a moment like this where the Holy Spirit speaks through us to affirm and exhort one another. Thank you for sharing this scene with me today. I think I know now exactly when we will do this together, and it will be soon. And beautiful.

    • Oh I love that, Kellie! Praying for you as you walk in the courage the Spirit gives. I know He’ll be faithful to bless your time of lifting up one another!

  2. Becky, you took me right back to that day. You’ve even got pictures! It was a special evening; thank you for going where the Spirit led!

  3. Becky,
    Indeed Holy Spirit is our lifetime partner.
    God blessed you & family tremendously.

  4. Today, courage looks like a conversation. It’s not what I would choose, but I’m choosing to be faithful. Lord Jesus, fill me with Your Spirit of power and boldness, knowing You are with me. Thank you, Becky

  5. I needed this word today. I am planning a mission trip for the fall to many places on the east coast. Just me and God. I have asked him to show me those who need encouragement, healing or come to know Him. I have trained for the past period of Covid19 in the healing ministry with a friend from Chard, UK who received his ministry directly from Kathryn Kuhlman. I know God has called this yet the closer it gets to the fall, those feelings of doubt creep in. I will be considered crazy by many. I am so excited for what God is doing and know this is HIS timing. Thank you for sharing for us to take courage and take heed to the Spirit of God.

    • Mary, thank you for reading and sharing your heart this morning. May God guide you each step, each encounter, as you courageous trust in Him!

  6. Interesting read. As a Christian myself I believe if we read and believe the Bible Yoga is not of God.

    • I find that where we center our mind makes all the difference! With worship music playing, meditating on Scripture, and practicing breath prayer, this type of yoga was absolutely an opportunity to connect with God. But even if we differ on our opinions about yoga, I hope the point of this article — that the Holy Spirit is present and active in our lives — still encouraged you! Thanks for reading.

  7. This makes me feel better about a decision I had to make, and I was not sure of. But I kept feeling like God was saying “I will Provide”. Time will tell but I wont regret a thing. Thank you

  8. I love this! So wonderful to hear your surrender to The Spirit story. I started teaching a Christian yoga class back in January, and I too felt awkward at first. I felt my spiritual cues, prayer and meditative prompting sounded forced or “fake” but 6 mos later I feel and see how beautifully He is working in and through me and in the ladies coming to the class.

  9. Love this Becky! What a gift it is to speak the beauty we see in one another to one another. ♥️And yes that Holy Spirit guidance is like nothing else!!

  10. amen and amen! I have learned one key that I’m hearing God and Not myself is when it is something Good to do that I don’t want to do! and may even feel uncomfortable about … as long as it doesn’t violate God’s Word (in which case it would t be good!) I realize that I am being stretched and about to be used and blessed, and the best times are when I move forward with the Spirit. I wonder what might have happened all the times I let fear or pride or laziness have the last word.

  11. Becky,
    What a blessing you gave each woman at the retreat when you followed the Spirit’s urging. Oh how we all long to be seen and appreciated. Now, more than ever, I am convicted to pray, ask, listen, and most of all follow the Holy Spirit’s nudges. I believe He nudges a lot more than we realize — too often I/we are too distracted to pick up on the subtlety. Here’s to having our antennae up and to following the Spirit’s leading no matter how awkward we might feel. If we don’t move, we may miss a God-ordained moment. Beautiful post and thanks for checking in on me…

  12. Recently the Holy Spirit inspired me to do something I would never have done of my own volition. Not certain this came from the Holy Spirit, still, I wanted to be obedient in trust and did as inspired. Afterwards, I felt free, loved, accepted and happy. Now I’m more open to hearing and obeying.

  13. I’m gone to convey my little brother, that he should also visit this web site on regular basis to obtain updated from hottest news update.

  14. I can only imagine how powerful this would be. God blesses us with a tribe and yes we need to invite HIM into each activity.

  15. Becky,

    My pastor calls it God’s aha moments. When God or the Holy Spirit tells you to do something just get up & do it. You will be blessed & so will the recipient. Far to often we let doubt creep in & ask ourselves did I hear Him right? Or worse yet we say ah I’ll get to it later. Problem is later never comes. We get busy & forget to do it. Thank you for listening to the Holy Spirit & making those wonderful women know they are seen & loved. We could all use that more in our world.

    Blessings 🙂
