I grew up learning about God and as a teenager came to understand that God wanted me to be part of His family. I believed that His son, Jesus, died for my sins and I accepted His free gift of salvation. I began to know God as a father who loved and forgave me, and desired to know me.
Years ago I lost something and asked God to show me where to look. The answer popped into my mind and even though it seemed illogical, I found my lost item in that place. It is amazing to me that the God who created and maintains the universe is also concerned about everything in my life and desires to speak to me and know me intimately. I now know God as my personal friend and love the conversations we share.
