I’ve loved the Lord since I was seven-years-old. But for forty years of my Christian walk, fear ruled my life. I made a decision in 2014 to do everything I could to be the person God created me to be. I knew God wanted me to live with confidence in him and face some of my greatest fears.Do you want to know how the Holy Spirit helps you? Get Empowered— a free e-Book today! Click To Tweet
Do you ever feel like change is impossiple? I struggled to figure out how I was supposed to face fears that terrified me. How could I serve God when my fear of what people thought about me always stood in my way?
One of my favorite verses is 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” That spirit of power, love, and self-control is the Holy Spirit! What an amazing gift God has given to us!
I believe there are many Christians like me who love God but don’t understand the power available to them through the gift of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer.
As I searched the Bible, I discovered so many ways the Holy Spirit works in every believer’s life.
I wrote about each way in a blog post series titled Empowered. Some readers wanted them all in one place, and so I decided to create a free e-book/workbook.
