Description : God has promised to be present with us. He offers us his peace, forgiveness and love. He wants to hear about our lives and meet our needs. Most of all, God extends to us the gift of his presence in our lives. This book shows how we can experience the riches of God's love. "Quiet time" is an opportunity to meet with God - to pray, worship, reflect and study the Bible. It is a part of the day when worries and responsibilities are set aside so that God can speak to us. Discover not only how to set aside a time and place, but how to become a peaceful person and meet with a partner. Quiet time experiences go in phases - sometimes exciting and powerful and at other times dry and stale. Stephen Eyre walks us through these dynamics, showing how we can learn from all our experiences - and avoid the trap of guilt. If you want to know God better, this book shows you where to start. Each chapter contains devotional exercises that allow you to put what you are reading into action. Come, and discover the joy of drawing close to God.
