A young boy was lying on his back by a stream holding a string in his hand. A stranger walked up to him and asked, "What are you doing?" "I am flying a kite," came the reply. "But I don't see any kite," said the man. "I don't either," said the boy. "But I know it's there. I can feel the tug on my string."
Like the boy, we are here on this earth. But our Lord, like the kite, is beyond us in heaven. The string that binds our hearts to our Father in heaven is our faith. And the Holy Spirit is the One who connects us to Him and gives power to our prayers. We may not see God all of the time, but through faith we know that He is there – above us, beyond us, connected to us, waiting on us – to call upon Him and feel His "tug." God wants us to stay in touch with Him through our faith in Him and feel His presence in our lives.
