I have tried to follow in his footsteps by lending out a helping hand and always being there for my friends and family. I will never be able to give such great sacrifices as he did, but I will surely try.Believing in the Holy Spirit is a little harder for me. I know that he is there when we pray, but I can never seem to find him. I think it will be awhile until I am finally able to discover the Holy Spirit and feel all his power. I am not in a big hurry though. I know I will find the Holy Spirit sooner or later and by that time I will be prepared.To answer the question, do I believe? Yes, I do believe. I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only son, our lord who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heave and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
