I really liked the below article about a healing and God moving in the Eagles' locker room:
If one's concept of following the Holy Spirit causes everyone around to think they are flaky, irresponsible, and incapable of committing to anything... perhaps that person is pretty clueless about the Holy Spirit. And if they think everyone around them has a religious spirit for thinking this about them... well, maybe they don't understand a religious spirit as much as they think.
Praying really hard yet believing that nothing will happen (as an orphan spirit) is a poor substitute for trusting God as a child of the King! In other words, God responds more to what people believe than a lot of words...
