The Spirit Doesn't Solve Your Problems

But if you ask, and listen, the Spirit helps you discern your problems' true nature.

The Spirit helps you know when you need to hold your tongue, and strengthens you when you need to speak. The Spirit gives you the confidence to be humble.

The Spirit lets you forgive, freeing you for the business you need to be about. The Spirit encourages you to keep trying, and reassures you that there is always the possibility to do better.

The Spirit grounds you in the infinite love of God, and makes you a conduit of that love. It reminds you to do the things and say the words and make the changes that say "I love you" to the people around you.

But you still have to solve your own problems.
