i feel the spirit

Do you remember what it was like to feel? I mean, really feel. With your heart, our mind, your whole soul and spirit and every it of your being. It’s been so long, so long since my whole being was in total synchronization. I loved the way I felt when I felt.
—  From a Book I’ll Never Write #45 

So, I honestly feel like Emma and Dylan having a daughter so young makes sense for them. I mean, Emma may be twenty/twenty one, but the one thing both she and Dylan have always yearned for was a family. Emma latched onto Norman and Norma, not just because she saw Norman as a friend, but because Norma seemed to be everything that she wanted as a mother. And Dylan just wanted to be important to Norma and Norman. So them having their own little girl makes a ton of sense.

The fields before the land spirit’s hills and cliffs have been plowed and seeded with something that grows quick in this season’s weather. I know crops are rotated year round, so it may be they have planted the fertilizer for this autumn’s fields.

The creek undercutting the hills has not been soft with its touch, and not only is the cliff face substantially different, but a good chunk of arable land has been removed by the bursts of floods as well. Even though this process has been going on for a considerable length of time, it feels to me like the beginning of an end.

This feeling is underlined when I try to catch a glimpse of the dirt face where I would feel the land spirit strongest. Every time I am able to see it clearly, and the traffic conditions allow me the grace of a second long stare, something turns my head to face forward as if I am peeking through a veil that I have not grace to lift.

I accept the correction and make no recalcitrant attempts to see again as I head to work, even though the next day I know I’m going to try to see what I am allowed to see again.

I feel like I have finally been allowed to have a thing, and it has been handed to me a few scant days before it expires. I don’t know what the fields will ripen into, physically or otherwise. I am thankful for what I have been allowed to share, and will see what the new day brings.

anonymous asked:

Have you been filled with the Spirit? If so can you describe what that experience was like and how it occurred?

I was filled with the Holy Spirit when I became born-again and repented of my sins. Laying down my life and asking God to fill me with Him. I want nothing else but Him and His will for me. I feel the Holy Spirit in me everyday. I feel it when I am reading His word and I’m overcome with goosebumps at the thought of me reading God’s breathed out Holy Word. I feel it when I am singing and I’m overcome by this flood of emotions and I just start crying because of how blessed I am in Christ and realizing how much Jesus truly loves me; enough to die for me. Me, who was so undeserving and deserved to take His place. Instead, He took the place for me. I feel it when I come across something that tempts me and my conscience responds giving me conviction and warning. I feel it when I am talking to someone and I look them in the eyes being able to feel their weight of life. That new nature and new creation is when you are filled with the Holy Spirit. You have new desires and a new outlook at everything in the world. You see people different now as well. You just have this security in Him now that no one can take away. His words start actually meaning something to your soul, heart and mind. You want to do everything that brings glory to Him and do everything for Him. You want to serve Him by serving others. You realize every inhale and exhale is of Him. You just seriously become a new person. It occurred last year in July of 2016. I will never forget that one day where I woke up and I felt truly free. I will never be able to explain how that feels 100%. I remember in December around my birthday, I was talking to someone about God and they asked me why/how I had so much faith in God. I ended up balling for about 10 minutes just reflecting over everything He has brought me through. How He has truly worked in me and my life. Sure my circumstances were and still are rough, but it wasn’t about me or about my circumstances. It was about Him and what He has done for me. His promises and how He will finish the work He has begun in me. How He delivered me and brought me out of those deep waters. You just never get tired of hearing the gospel of Jesus. Gods words are like sweet honey to your soul. So yeah, its been quite the experience. Laying down your life and denying your flesh is a hard thing to do but it’s truly worth it in the end. Its a battle everyday, a spiritual one. The Holy Spirit is the gift inside of us given to us by God. It is that drastic change and transformation in Christ. We each have different gifts by The Holy Spirit residing in us along with the fruit of the Holy Spirit when we are born-again which produces good fruit naturally by the power and strength of God in us. Even when we mess up we can come boldly through repentence to His throne of grace and forgiveness. That clean slate of Him washing our spirit in His blood making us white as snow. He picks us back up again, dusting us off and preparing us in Him for battle again. Hope this helps, God bless you.

ok so as i said regarding this excerpt from the winter soldier novel, i have realized that Official Movie Novelizer is my true calling and would like to apply for that position immediately. to prove i am prepared for this responsibility, i have used the passage in question as a jumping off point and written the rest of the scene. as u know, the official novelization goes like this:

Then Steve decided to open up as well. “I grew up with a guy. We grew up together.”

Sam knew by the tone in Steve’s voice it was someone who had served with him. “He make it back?” Sam asked.

Steve sighed and looked to the floor, pain in his eyes. “Killed in action.” There was a silence between them for a few seconds before Steve continued, “I’ve been through a lot of changes. I don’t know if anything hit me as hard as losing Bucky.”

“We fight for our guys, ya know?” Sam said.

now i have not actually read this book but i am reasonably sure that the next few paragraphs should go like this:

“I do know,” said Steve, looking deep into Sam’s eyes. “Nothing’s ever been more important to me than my guys.”

“Right?” Sam was getting a certain vibe from Steve but he didn’t want to jump to any conclusions. Maybe this was just the way guys acted back in 1943. Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained. “Like if I had a guy right now, I would definitely treat him right.”

Steve looked in both directions like he was making sure they were alone and stepped closer to Sam. “This is amazing. No one I’ve met since I woke up understands me the way you do.”

Sam was sad to think of Steve alienated and suffering. “Oh, hey man…I’m here for you.”

Steve’s face lit up. “Really? Do you wanna leave your fulfilling and socially useful job to risk your life defying the American government at my side?”

Sam wanted to explain to this hot sweet hunk of dumbass that you can’t be so open and trusting with someone you basically met five minutes ago. On the other hand, Steve had assessed him correctly. Sam knew himself to be intrepid and loyal, a brilliant fighter with a built-in skepticism about the American government’s commitment to civil liberties. Plus, Steve looked so excited and happy Sam didn’t have the heart to say no. There was just one potential problem.

“Steve, what if your guy turns up alive with a bunch of assault rifles and starts shooting everybody?”

Steve bit his lip, clearly giving the matter some thought. Then he put his hand on Sam’s arm. “That wouldn’t be a problem for us, Sam. Of course I’d still love him…but I have so much love to give.”

Sam felt ambivalent about the possibility of having to share Steve with a brainwashed cyborg assassin, but after all it was only a hypothetical. “Okay,” he said at last.

“So you’ll do it?” Steve dropped to one knee, overcome with joy. “Really, Sam?”

“Yes, Steve,” Sam said, taking Steve’s hand. “I’ll marry you.”

Cleric: “I just… feel bad. I try to help and as soon as I do, it always backfires…”
Rogue: “Hey, at least you try to be helpful. I just do what I want and only care about the people close to me and don’t try to help anyone else. I’m a bad person.”
Cleric: “I don’t think that’s true. I think you just claim that so you don’t have to put the responsibility and expectations of doing good because you’re not sure you can do it- so you call yourself a bad person to avoid your moral compass and any failures that may result from it.”
Rogue: *Sweats intensely* “AHEM, ANYWAYS-”

I dont think i have ever seen a character with such expressive eyes. Fenris speaks a whole lot louder with his expressions than his words. I understand everything he is feeling just from a look so its strange to me that other characters find him hard to read. People dont know how to listen unless you yell.
