His Truth Will Set You Free

Listen to what Jesus says; “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)

Stirring Our Soul

choc chip cookies

Bacon sizzling in the frying pan;

chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven;

fresh cut grass;

summer rain on hot pavement.

These things stir our memories, senses, and emotions.


God’s words of love, forgiveness, and hope;

An image of Jesus suffering on the cross, for us;

A sense of His Spirit’s presence within our heart;

A wave of love crashing over us, flooding us with emotion.

These things stir our soul, and breathe fire into our life.

And I’m so grateful.

First, my writing isn't about me. Don’t want the attention, don’t want to feed my ravenous ego (yep, I’m just a typical pride-plagued human). But I love writing - it gets me out of bed when it's way too dark, just so I can do some writing before heading off to work. I write because I’m passionate about God, Jesus, His Spirit, and His truth. And, I feel the Holy Spirit gets shortchanged in the world we call Christianity. The truth is sometimes lacking too.
