Welcome, My name is Malinda, and I’m the creator of this Truth for Real Life website. Thank you for stopping by to visit. My hope is that you will find comfort and healing as you read truth from the Word of God, which is contained in my writings.
Some messages may be harder to read than others, because the truth isn’t always easy to hear. But, the truth never changes, it is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Truth is absolute.
The words of the Bible are alive and active, which means they work to transform us from the inside out. Just as physical labor can be hard work, the transformative work of the Holy Spirit can be difficult too, but what is produced is a beautiful peaceful life. This work usually doesn’t happen all at once, but it is a process as we allow God to work in us. There is no substitute for inner peace!
God’s words are powerful, and His message of eternal salvation will inspire anyone who prays, and continues to read His word. By praying, (speaking to God with reverence) and reading the Bible we begin to form a relationship with God, through Jesus. This is what God desires. He desires to have a deep personal relationship with each of us. God pursues us, but He is a gentleman and will not go where He is not welcome.
It is my desire to inspire others with the truth & hope that is found in the Bible. This truth offers each of us forgiveness, eternal life, love, joy, peace, hope and healing for our lives, and that is just the tip of the iceberg! God is so Good!
It’s a privilege to be able to share what I’ve learned and have experienced in my own life. Some things will be extremely difficult for me to share, but if just one person may benefit from it, then it has been worth it.
My hope is that others may find the same restoration for their lives, that I have found through coming to know Jesus as my Savior.
I once was totally lost, but now I am found, and my life has been restored. I used to live thinking that I would seek God, once I was done having all the fun I wanted to have. Little did I know that none of what I thought was fun, was good at all and it lead me to experience a lot of pain. Oh the painful consequences of living in opposition to God (sin). Somehow, we think that we know what is best for our lives, but end up finding out that we never should have gone outside of God’s good boundaries. I found out that He really does know what is best for us, the hard way.
Never, would I ever want to go back to living my life without God in it. Knowing Him and following His will provides the inner peace we so desperately desire.
Now, there is no more fear, for perfect love casts out all fear. I hope to get to know you better. Please feel free to comment on my post, or if you would like to speak directly to me you may always email at: firstname.lastname@example.org Blessings to you always, Malinda
