God has really been doing a lot in my world lately. The devotionals I’ve been using are just earth-shattering. Seriously, it’s like I’ve grown so much in the past year as a Christian, like deeper. I’ve been a follower of Christ since I grew up. I asked Jesus into my heart as a child, but didn’t let him really be my Savior and Lord until I was 14 years old. I’m well past that age now-21 years to be exact. And I have continued on my journey as a Christian ever since then. But, in this past year, God has really been working on me and changing me. I can honestly say I can’t get enough of Him.
I wanted to share with you some of the resources I have been using that have helped me. It’s not the resources themselves that have done it. But God has used them in my life. If you want to really grow in the Lord you have to set aside the time to spend with Him. It’s like any relationship-you want to grow closer to your spouse when then spend time with them. Same with your kids and friends. Then the more time you spend with them the more you want to be around them. It’s the same with God.
In addition to spending time you really have to position your heart. Just flat out be honest with God. Completely honest with Him and tell Him flat out what’s going on in your head and heart. He knows anyway. And the thing is, when we are completely honest with God-He meets us where we are.
So here are the resources I have used and I hope you can find them helpful too.

Priscilla Shirer Armor of God
This will rock your world. Seriously. It has changed my prayer life. I really can’t say enough about this book. I did it first as an individual and then our church did the series with the videos.
I’m going to be real with you. I was skeptical about this book. God is not a Jeanie in a Bottle (Yes, thank you Christina Aguilera) that I can just pray fervently and get what I want. But after reading this, I have found the intimacy with God as I pray to Him-He’s my Dad. I can ask Him anything. Now His answer may be No, but that’s okay. This book has also taught me about praying BIG. And I mean BIG.
That study brought the Bible alive to me. I mean wowzer. It was awesome.
Alright, I had to share these with you. This is one question I get asked so frequently and I can’t keep these to myself. I just pray that you come to a closer relationship with God through these. He is so awesome and His love for us is beyond anything we can comprehend. And I am so thankful. If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus-mercy you may be wondering what in the world i’m talking about a “relationship with Jesus” is-please contact me, Facebook message me, IG me, anything. I would absolutely love to talk to you about it!!!
In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
