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)

The Spirit Speaks – of Joy

1 Comment

Joy & Holy Spirit

Happiness – it’s seems so elusive, and temporary, doesn’t it? This is because it comes from the world, and all things of the world are temporary. The happiness I, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, offer you is eternal and permanent, for it does not come from material things or worldly experience; it comes from God. I call this joy.

True joy starts growing when you look inside yourself, looking for me. I’m there, always waiting for you. When you believe in my presence, joy begins. As you empty yourself of the temporary things, as you empty yourself of your self, and make more room for me, then I will fill you up. As I become more within you, so does joy. And I can fill you to overflowing with joy. I’m already here, within you – please let go of your grasp on the material, and grab a hold of me, and the joy will begin to flow within you.

Reflections on a double life... I'm just a wanna-be writer. What's it like trying to do serious writing while also being consumed with a full-time engineering job? Between the two, I sometimes don't get much sleep. But I love writing - it gets me out of bed when it's way too dark, just so I can do some work on my book before heading off to work. I'm also passionate about the truth of God and Jesus, a truth that is not always visible in the outward view of the Christian religion. It's this passion that has pulled me out of bed to write for over 6 years now, still working on the same book, a book about truth. Will it ever be finished? God knows.
