To me the Holy Spirit is an indwelling presence and helps me make right decisions. It is a still small voice or many times the direction comes in the form of a feeling. By this I mean my peace, if it is stirred up and not peaceful then I need to examine my decision and rethink it.. There is so much more as the Holy Spirit is a topic that could have pages written about it and there are many books out there but I just wanted to share my experience with it.
