Strong spirits: Me? Talk to God?

Did you know that God wants to talk with you? That could be very intimidating, or very exciting, depending on how you look at it.

After all, on the one hand, God is the creator of the universe- all-knowing, all-powerful, everywhere-present. It could feel a lot like being called to the principal's office. Scary.

On the other hand, God is our loving and approachable father, wanting only the very best for his children, you and I. And like any good father, he is open to his children coming to him throughout the day for anything they might need, or any question they might have.

Jesus tells us: "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in..." (Revelations 3:20)

You can have a day-long, ongoing conversation with the one who loves you most! How about it?
