What if you opened the mail one day and found a letter from your Heavenly Father? Would you read it carefully, word by word? Would you treasure it in your heart, referring to it again and again?


The Bible is God's message to you. 2 Timothy 3:16 says: "Every scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness..." The Bible was written for each and every one of us. It is God's Word to us, personally!


Each devotional reading takes scripture verses and rephrases them as if God is speaking in first-Person. Sometimes I have added my own words (in parentheses) for clarity. Please click on the Bible references at the end of each post to read the verses in their corresponding translations on Bible Gateway.com.


It is my prayer that you will be encouraged and refreshed as you read these verses of Scripture in a new and personal way.
