How would you describe the presence of God/Holy spirit?

Sometimes I struggle with faith but lately I have been getting a lot of warm fuzzy feelings. I get the impression that its Gods love and comfort.

I am perusing God through purity, prayer and worship and he responds with warm fuzzies....

A peace, a joy, a passion that wells up inside for anything about God or a response of love to people that causes an action to help them, and an explosion of worship and thanks.

Today I felt something inside that I've never felt before. It wasn't warm and fuzzy, it was more like a fiery inspiration. I almost burst into tears. I couldn't really process it all so I had to stop and just close my eyes. It was compassion, thanksgiving, understanding, inspiration, a sense of purpose and even guilt all at once. He gifted me this today while on a 5 hour flight. I chose to draw closer to Him rather than watch a movie on the screen in the back of the seat in front of me. I waste so much valuable time on this Earth. I cannot imagine what he would tell/show me if I worshiped him 24/7.

Sometimes I feel warm and fuzzy. Sometimes I feel chills going down my spine (good chills not ones associated with fear) and other times I cry tears of joy. Its the most amazing feeling ever, its really undescribable, we as Christians all know and feel it.

All of the above, all the tangible, physical signs of the shivers, the fire, the fuzzies, the uncontrollable tears...
but the presence of the spirit?
to that I ascribe the unspeakable joy within.

It's different for me depending on the situation. I genuinely believe God makes us aware of his presence depending on what we need for the moment. One moment in particular during my 17th year was specifically God saving me from fear brought on by a demonic manifestation in my house. The peace that came after I trusted him enough to turn my back to my room was so complete, was so awesome that I no longer fear the enemy. That peace was also accompanied by two angels that sat on my bed: one at the foot, and one at the head (no I'm not crazy. The bed physically compressed in two spots)

That moment was a spiritual battle sort of thing and the battle doesn't manifest itself everyday, thankfully.

When I feel God's presence there is a strong desire to pray and talk to him, to sing a hymn or particularly beautiful praise song, and a sense of love and joy.

While the spirit is there at those moments, I feel HIS presence most when I mourn for the state of everything, when I feel compassion, or when I get the sudden urge to do something. I felt him a couple weeks ago at a prayer meeting, and that manifested in a slight shortness of breath (like the presence of God had taken my breath away) and tears.

The Holy Spirit is always with God's children but we respond to that in different ways.

I've had quite a few inexplicable experiences on the topic, and they seem to range from experiences of strange happenings to full-blown esoteric visions of God. There's a great description of this in 2 Corinthians 3:18 and I highly recommend the previous passages linking this to Moses' experience on Mt. Sinai. There are also a few interesting relevant nuggets to be found in the Gospels.
