Staying Connected With God

10 days, light reading
Did you know the Bible says we must glue ourselves to God? Love joins us to God. Love attaches itself and does not let go. The best of both divine and human love is “hesed” steadfast or enduring love. If we stay attached to God, we will live. If we come unglued, it will not be good. Here are ten ways we stay connected with God. Let’s do it!


12 Ways God Loves You

12 days, light reading
The Bible tells us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. Brain science tells us of twelve ways we learn strong love that we might not always recognize as love. The Bible reveals that God shows us love and teaches us to love others in the exact ways that make love strong.
