G’day, my name is Dave and I’m the author of Doubledgedsword.
I’m an Aussie guy who became a Christian in 1999, and have been learning what it means to follow Jesus ever since. I am married to Brandie, an awesome American gal I met online in 2014 and we live in Melbourne here in Australia
I watch movies and YouTube, and reading, street photography and talking are hobbies that I really enjoy. Growing as a Christian and being connected to a church community are pretty important to me, and over the years I have had plenty of people who have taken the time to support and encourage me on my faith journey. I am thankful for where I have been and for the people God has placed in my life in the different seasons I have experienced.
This blog is for Christians who want to take their faith walk more seriously, are keen to engage with other believers and with the bible. My hope is to encourage people to be transformed by the renewing of their minds and to help people get to the heart of their walk with Jesus.
The name of this blog comes from the Hebrews verse below. Over the years of reading and studying the bible it has come alive for me, challenged me and has helped me overcome some massive hurdles . My prayer is that the same thing happens for you.
Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart
So have a read, leave a comment and let me know your thoughts on things that I have written about. Thanks for dropping by!
