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 Piece of Mind vs. Peace of Mind

peace of mind

The world is ravenous for your attention. The world wants all of you. All the things going on in your world compete for a piece of your mind. Work or school demands a large chunk. A troubled relationship demands more. And dozens of other daily distractions clamor for whatever scraps of your mind fall their way, until there’s nothing left for you.

Drag your mind away from the things of the world and look inside yourself to me, the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Escape from the noise of the world, find a quiet place, and rest with me. The more you practice being with me in your quiet place, the easier it will be to find me again when the world is loud and hungry all around you.

Give me not just a piece of your mind, but all your mind. And by my presence within you, I will give you peace of mind.

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.

Please share your thoughts... thanks.
