Dear Friend,

God bless you, strengthen you and lead you in His high call over your life.

Jesus taught the disciples to pray, “give us this day our daily bread.” The architect of the universe designed you and I to have daily contact with Him.

If you look at the Lord’s prayer in Matthew 6: 9-13, that contact with God involves our bread, worship, prayer, petition, personal forgiveness, help to forgive others and power to be delivered from temptation.

When you scan any given day of your life, do you ever have a day when you don’t need at least one of those?

Just as eating food fuels our physical body, contact with God fuels our spirit.

Create some good spiritual eating habits for yourself. Make those habits realistic. Don’t try to pray for 4 hours when you’re not praying 4 minutes. If possible bookmark your days at the beginning and the end with prayer.

Find a devotional you like and wake up with it. Or go to bed reading it.  You can sign up for the 6 free devotionals on my website:

Or you can do your daily devotion with the book of Proverbs because there are 31 of them. Or you can google, “Christian devotionals,” and explore what’s available.

You can also chose a theme to study for a month in the Bible, and just keep tossing yourself into it each day. Or join a bible study group where there’s interaction and you have to come prepared. Accountability in community can help keep us on track. Bible Gateway is another powerful resource ready for use:

Get going with God every day. If you’re feeling weak chances are you haven’t been feeding your spiritual life daily.

This is not an invitation to the ritual of prayer. It’s a real life connection with the God who calls YOU friend.

You’ve been made for this.

Don’t miss it. And don’t skimp on it.

“‘I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business.
Instead, I have called you friends…’”
Jesus (John 15:15)

In His Love and mine,
