The first words I heard the Lord speak in my inner heart and spirit on the retreat were, "I know you can't think, reason, or love, but lean on me; I can do all things" For the first time in months I felt at peace. my mind which had been spinning out of control came to rest.
The first chapter, "Desperation Street" shows how God loves us even when we can't love ourselves. The beginnings of our infant steps, as we learned to walk with Jesus.
How his teachings filled with gentle loving kindness met us in our everyday needs. ~The lessons so simple and clear, that we could understand them.

With no one to guide us, he taught us to read and study his word, most of the time teaching with one or two versus of scripture at a time.

Teaching Spiritual truths from a Christmas Tree, Eggs and everyday mundane things in our lives. Showing each of us, he was the God of our every day miracles.
As you read this, and see in our lives how God taught us about His, I pray that God's love will bless you, and that you would hunger to know more of him.
