We took the kids to the circus recently, and my hubby took this great photo!

The elephants were my favorite act to watch...they seemed like these sweet and gentle giants.  Though they had more power and brute strength than any of the animals in the whole circus, they seemed to have the gentlest disposition and seemed the most patient of all the animals!  I loved how the elephant held his female trainer in his trunk, lifting her high above his head, yet always holding her very tenderly and never bruising her or dropping her.

It just reminds me of the Holy Spirit within us, how He is the strongest power in the universe, like a mighty, rushing wind, and yet with us He is so gentle, like the whisper of a Spring breeze.

He is so strong defending us from the adversary, and yet so tender touching us with His love!

He is so powerful in pushing back the lies and darkness that come against us, and yet so kind and sweet with us in all our woundedness.

He crushes the enemy opposition before us and makes the mountains in front of us turn into a plain!  And yet, the bruised reed of our lives He will not break, nor will He extinguish the smoldering wick of our heart-light.

Tough and tender, great and gentle!  What a wonderful Advocate, Helper, Comforter and Friend!
