A Feeling You Can't Describe

As I listen to a lady tell her conversion story of how she found Christ in her life, this unique feeling came over me.  It was nothing overwhelming, or anything to fear, but subtle peace.  As she spoke this feeling told me her story was all true.  As she bore testimony of the happiness which comes from following Christ, the feeling caused her words to ring true inside me.

The feeling is happiness. The feeling is peace.  The feeling is love.  Its like receiving a hug from someone you know and love in a time of need.  The feeling is amazing, but so hard to explain.  Words don't seem to give justice to this divine feeling...

But what is this feeling that is so hard to explain?

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

This feel is the Spirit!  We all have the chance to feel it if we put ourselves in the right place, and open our hearts!  I am grateful for this indescribable feeling, that Heavenly Father sends each one of us personally to let us know of the His truth.

FOLLOW, and ACT when this feeling is sent to you!


  1. I love feeling the Spirit. I too have those feelings especially when I know I am doing something right! When I know God is pleased with what I am doing, whatever He may want me to do.

  2. Elder Bankhead, you did a nice job of describing something that is indescribable. It is so cool when people are able to recognize that the Spirit is with them.
