Conviction is when the Holy Spirit shines His flashlight on a dark area in my heart. --Kent Crockett

The Word and the Spirit
"If you have the Word without the Spirit, you'll dry up.
If you have the Spirit without the Word, you'll blow up.
If you have both the Word and the Spirit, you'll grow up." --Derek Prince
Filled with the Holy Spirit
You have probably been in a restaurant where the waitress has asked, "Can I warm up your coffee for you?" The cup may be half-full and cold after sitting on the table for a while. When she pours the new coffee in, she refills and warms up the cup.
Maybe you are spiritually cold and empty. It doesn't have to stay that way. Quit trying to live in your own power and strength. Ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit right now. (Kent Crockett, The 911 Handbook,
Those annoying people
The thing that aggravates you may be the Holy Spirit convicting you of an attitude that needs to be changed.
