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 Courage

1 Comment


It takes courage to let go of the familiar and pursue the unknown. I know it takes courage to let go of the world, and look inside to me, the Spirit of Jesus Christ living within you. To you, the world, though hard and sometimes filled with pain, is real and familiar. It’s comfortable.

I ask you to have the courage to get up off that couch of comfortable familiarity and step off on a journey of adventure. And more than adventure; I offer you love, joy, peace, and the heavenly traits you need to truly live life. I just ask you to gather up enough courage to take that first step and look inside yourself, to me. And I will give you the strength and courage you need for the rest of the adventure.


“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22-23)

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.
