Spirit filled soul? Why Not

Have you had to deal with your “soul” realm lately? I have, but Holy Spirit used the “aggravation” to teach me something. Got a few minutes for me to share some insights?
Spirit Filled Soul? Why Not?
Thinking quietly on the Lord this morning, my thoughts began to float about. They turned to other places: upcoming events, laundry, this month’s Holy Spirit charged WOTL gathering, what’s for dinner, and so on.
They were typical thoughts and emotions from the realm of my soul which always tries to butt in to my reflections and quiet meditations … communion with my King. Does this ever happen to you???

This is how I began to pray. “Holy Spirit – indweller of my spirit please come and dwell also in my soul. Come and rule and reign in my thoughts, in my emotions, in my desires. Come always and shut the doors of interruptions and distractions that so often sway me away from hearing and seeing the Jesus who lives in me.
Cleanse my soul realm of ungodly memories, negative thoughts, and fleshly behaviors. I choose to let my mind, will, and emotions line up with the pattern of communion that Jesus as a man had with our heavenly Father.
Let all that is of the soul realm submit to holiness, purity, faith, intimacy with my Beloved Jesus”

Would you agree that when we are walking in the Light we will become a carrier of His Light to the dark places in the captive souls of others? They too, no doubt, would like to be able to choose to live with the thoughts, will, and emotions of Jesus.”

Why not declare Paul’s words with me: Galatians 2:20″I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loves me and gave himself for me.”
This oneness with Christ will become more of a reality as Holy Spirit is given full reign in our soul life.
