The Challenge: Read the Bible Every Day

I was in the sixth grade when I heard it. Growing up in church developed my passion for the Bible. I remember setting down my pipe cleaners as a toddler in the pew to listen to what the preacher had to say. I remember in Elementary school becoming interested in weekly Bible stories. But I

Come and Rest

Rest in Me, My child. This time devoted to Me is meant to be peaceful, not stressful. You don’t have to perform in order to receive My Love. I have boundless, unconditional Love for you. How it grieves Me to see My children working for Love: trying harder and harder, yet never feeling good enough
