“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”John 8:32
Although we will experience spiritual warfare (battle between good & evil) as well as challenging times on earth, Jesus offers us peace that the world cannot know as well as the Holy Spirit’s supernatural power so we can please Him and find fulfillment as we discover the path we were created to follow. Jesus sustains us as we trust in Him, making it possible for us to have joy even in the midst of trials. Nothing on earth compares to His amazing love, mercy, grace, faithfulness, power, patience, creative genius & justice. His work in my life compels me to celebrate and share about our glorious Savior, Jesus Christ, so others can also know Him and spend eternity in heaven with their heavenly Father.

“What no eye has seen,1 Corinthians 2:9-10
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived—
the things God has prepared for those who love Him—
these are the things God has revealed to us by His Spirit.”
“Jesus said, ‘But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear’.”Matthew 13:16
