The Message

By PASTOR BILL MYERS,

God is Love!

By “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.” (Psalm 42:1)

I’m always spiritually attracted to someone who is “desperate” for more of God. You can see the longing for more of the Heavenly Father in their face, and especially in their eyes.
