"My sheep recognize my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them real and eternal life. They are protected from the Destroyer for good. No one can steal them from out of my hand."
John 10:27,28 (MSG)
Take a moment to think about the power of this truth.
I crave to know Him more. To hear His voice louder than my own. Hushing the noise of chaos. To soak in His peace and power.

I will take proactive steps to continue growing in my relationship with Him.
That is why it is important to practice spiritual disciplines, such as reading the Bible, praying, meditating, and fasting.
