TITLE: The Holy Spirt - The Heart's Search Engine

The search engine in my heart finds those prayers and feelings that I canít seem to utter. The heart knows the words I need to say and the Father can understand those groanings of my soul. Even if I do not understand what I need or want, the heart knows what to say. The heartís search engine explores every emotion, every thought and everything that is hidden from me. Things I never knew existed, the wants and needs that have been lost. My search engine finds those little afflictions, sometime treasures, and releases them to God. He knows what I require and what I desire. He hears my inner cries, my inside joy, and knows the dreams I have not yet dreamt.

This search engine is in the heart of every Christian, filtering out the data of our souls. Looking for what we need to express to our Lord. Sometimes we know what to pray, but in times of grief or even elation we donít have the words to express ourselves. This little search engine, also known as the Holy Spirit, is the searcher of our souls - our direct line of prayer and worship to our Father.

Very on topic, good job. Add a scripture and you have an awesome testimony/devotional.

I enjoyed this beautiful message, well written and your heart was totally in this entry. Good job. And, Jesus is our everything.

I mentioned in a couple of other entries, "I love imaginative pieces" that do not go with the typical definition of the topic at hand. Keep writing. God Bless~

I love reading anything about the Holy Spirit. And this devotional was DEFINITELY no exception.

Thank you for reminding us of the work that He does in our hearts and in our lives.

I truly enjoyed reading this. Nicely done!

Lovely little devotional--reminds me of something I would read in "Our Daily Bread". Strong all around.

So true. Previewing will help you find those little typos (as I am learning in my submissions) You are referring to a level of the Spirit that not everyone can identify with, but I can appreciate. You had plenty of words left to include a personal experience that could help others who don't yet understand the work of the Holy Spirit as you do.

This is a nice, short, right to the point devotion. Try to write on topic without using the topic words. You usedthe word search engine 5 or 6 times in just a couple of paragraphs.I liked that your shared snippets of your life and personal thoughts to illustrate your message.
