Relationship with God

God wants you to have a relationship with him. God wants to know and be known by you.

Learn about God's love for you, God's direction, God's strength and power, God's promises, God's beloved son Jesus, and God's Holy Spirit:



Listen... can you hear God?

God speaks to you in your hopes and dreams.

In the still of your heart.

In your boundless creativity and vision.

God is with you when you act in compassionate ways and reach out in kindness towards others.

God speaks in the laughter of children;
in the soothing voice of an old friend;
in the love and touch of your beloved.

In the support of people who care about you - who you are, where you have been,
and where you are going.

Like the old friend, God has always been there for you from the very beginning;
sending you helpers along the way.

Like the lover who invites you to share your life with him for all eternity,
God wants to spend every moment with you.

Like a loving father, God who holds you tight close to his heart to cheer you up
when you are feeling down.

'The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.'
[Deuteronomy 31:8]


God's face is the face full of love for you:
you are very much loved by God!

God cares about you, what you are doing, and is happy for you in your accomplishments and happiness.

You are the only person in the whole universe with the gifts God has given you:
you are the only one who can accomplish God's work here on earth.

Let God's hand guides you to do good in this world

To be an instrument of peace, mercy and compassion

You can count on God to show you what is right.

God's gift is to bless you and to let you know how very much you are loved.

God thinks you are terrific and is glad to be your friend!

My dove in the clefts of the rock,
in the hiding places on the mountainside,
show me your face,
let me hear your voice;
for your voice is sweet,
and your face is lovely.
[Song of Solomon 2:14]

How Do We Enjoy God's Company?

Well, first thing you should know is that
God ENJOYS our company...

When we actively seek him, or when we quietly know he is guiding our path

In our waking and in our sleeping.

when we speak or when we are silent, God knows what is in our hearts and minds

Look around at the majesty and beauty of God's creation. How beautifully God has decorated the flowers, birds and fields: every petal, every feather and every blade of grass is a genius work of art. Imagine the amount of care and attention to detail God has put into you!

God speaks to your hearts, he guides our every step

God is with us when we encourage others and serve those in need

When we do God's work and fight against injustices

God listens when we pray, and speaks to us when we study God's Word in sacred scripture

When you talk, God hears you and will come to you
and show himself to you.
He will answer you. Call on God, and he will answer you!

Just as life requires norishment, air and water - elements to sustain life and to provide for growth - the Bible is the nourishment you need to live a rich and satisfying life. God uses holy scripture to prepare and equip his people for every good work, and to teach and train us in righteousness [1 Timothy 3:16-17].

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.' [Jeremiah 33:3]

God dwells in most cherished memories. God was there cheering you on. Can you see him?

God strengthens us when we are energetic, or when we are tired

When those who know God encourage and comfort us, God speaks through them

When friends and strangers help us in our time of need.

In your saddest recollections, God was there carrying our burdens

Surrounding us with wisdom, warmth and love of family and friends

God was there when we were hurting, discouraged and thought we were alone

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. [1 Peter 5:7]


Wherever you are God is there too.

But the LORD has become my fortress,
and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
[Psalm 94:22]


God's gift is to bless you and to show you how much he loves you.

Be blessed by God, his love is a gift to you.

Jesus says: "I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you." [John 15:15]

At the cross, Jesus gave his life for his friends. You are his friend, he loves you that much!
