Are You Prepared for What's Next?

When you consider your future, what do you think will happen?

Expand Your Capacity to Be With God

 

God wants to be with you in increasingly deep and meaningful ways.

You can Be With Him more tangibly and significantly.  It starts with you wanting to be with Him ... or at least wanting to want to be with Him.

If you look for the Lord (Psalm 105:4), you will find Him.  "You will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13).

A few tools or springboards to the process of Being With God are ...

* Prayer ... beyond petitioning, beyond intercession, into communion

* Stillness and Silence ... simply being with Him without demand

* Waiting Upon the Lord ... deepening and growing in faith, as we hope in Him
