As I grow older, I discover more and more that the greatest gift I have to offer is my own joy of living, my own inner peace, my own silence and solitude, my own sense of well-being”. (Henri Nouwen)
We can only experience that joy when we have a personal relationship with Jesus – as we spend time in prayer and meditate on God’s Word. The more familiar we become with someone, the closer we tend to become to that person. The same is true with God. The more we read about what He has done for us and what He desires for us, the more intimate our relationship will be with Him.
