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)

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.
