My heart exults in the Lord, my horn is exalted in my God. I have swallowed up my enemies; I rejoice in my victory. 1 Samuel 2:1

    This week-end, I encountered a profound comment that clearly describes my relationship with God. Paraphrasing- It is just as important to talk TO God as it is to talk ABOUT God. Unfortunately, there are many of us that can not recite biblical writers, verses, numbers, etc. in talking ABOUT God. Does that make us less faithful to Him than those who do? I don’t think so! In my own private way, I talk TO God, and He talks TO me. He has never not responded. I may not have understood His response at the time, but I know in my heart that He responded. God bless those who can do both: talk TO God and talk ABOUT God! Those are the true leaders that we can count on to help us (me, especially) in our everyday struggles.Forever grateful, Joe
