There's a simple truth in Christianity. We were made for God. We were created for loving communion with Him!
Do you ever feel like you're failing in your relationship with God? Do you feel disconnected from Him in Scripture and in prayer?
So much of my spiritual growth was stunted in my early Christian life because I thought my relationship with God began with me. I was focused on the practical things I could do to be closer to God.
In that place, I became hyper-critical. I was always measuring myself against a standard I could not maintain. The more I thought of myself, the more I ran into my weakness.
In fact, the more I focused on myself, the more I failed. The more I failed, the more I felt ashamed. The more I felt ashamed, the more I performed religiously.
But I want to say this. Intimacy does not begin with us. It begins with God. He has invited us into the love of the Trinity; the eternal relationship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

After twenty-five years in ministry and Christian education, I believe there is a great need for theological teaching that fuels vibrant spirituality.
This is because it is one thing to know truths about God, but it is quite another thing to know God intimately as a person.
During this 40-day journey, we are going to dive into the knowledge of God the Father revealed in the Bible — both the Old and New Testament.
Then I am going to give you guided meditation tips and exercises I have learned over the past twenty-five years, so that you can take what you're learning about God in Scripture to God in prayer and find your heart expanding and drawing near.
