Discover Jesus in His Word and in Prayer, Part 1

God’s written word is His personal love letter to our hearts.  We discover who God is, who we are and what He longs to do in and through us. His word is holy, trustworthy and timely. His word is the anchor of our faith and relationship with Him. But prayer is the breath of our soul. God speaks to our mind through the Holy Spirit when we pray, read and reflect on the written word. Daily communication with God helps our relationship with Him to survive and thrive.

These instructions help us break away from our nature to allow us to bloom and strengthen our joy in the Lord.
