At the age of eleven, I started to go to the library, where I taught myself to read from beginners’ books. It was then that I realized what God truly wanted from me. He wanted me to be able to read the Bible (His Word) and carry a message of hope, love, and peace to as many as possible. I was to tell about the Savior Jesus Christ who came, died on a cross, and was resurrected for the sins of all people.
I want the world to know “Jesus, perfect and forever.” Without the direction of the Lord, this book would never have been possible. All of the glory goes to Him. Remember to go forward with bold confidence and take what Jesus is waiting to give you: peace, love, joy, and eternal life.
Time with God is not about quantity; it’s about quality.
It doesn’t have to be complicated. Simply come before God, give Him the moments you have available, and ask Him to fill those moments with His presence. When this is your heart’s attitude, the time you give to God becomes a sacred space that will change how you approach your day.
Growing in Grace is your invitation to a deeper walk with Jesus. Even in the middle of chaos, stress, and obstacles, the timeless words of Scripture can guide you into a place of peace, comfort, and joy.
You will experience 260 short, yet powerful devotional moments with God that will bring you strength, restoration, clarity, and wisdom. Covering topics such as miracles, your words, forgiveness, trust, love and hope, discover how God’s Word can positively shape the course of your day, bringing joy, freedom, peace, and a deeper intimacy with Jesus into your life.
Wherever you find yourself on your spiritual journey, a few moments of
quality time with God can powerfully illuminate your entire day!
Each morning in a time of study and meditation, the Lord met with me and gave me Scripture and understanding to share with my friend.
Soon I was sending these messages to more and more friends until I reached one hundred twenty readers. After a year, I had many people urging me to publish a book. So with God’s guidance I began down an unfamiliar road, but he was always by my side lending help when needed and moving me forward.
This devotional book is really from him to you. I was only the instrument he used to get these encouragements out to the body of Christ.
