Longing for God: Renewal comes from a meaningful encounter with God’s Word.

“I will delight in your decrees and not forget your word.  Be good to your servant, that I may live and obey your word. Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in
your instructions. I am only a foreigner in the land. Don’t hide your commands from me!  I am always overwhelmed with a desire for your regulations .” �
Psalm 119:16-20

“When I discovered your words, I devoured them. They are my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies.” �
Jeremiah 15:16
