Can you imagine how God would feel he felt the childlike love and posture from us embodied in this drawing…a heart that says I love you. You are my best friend forever.
What if God is like me on the other side of the bed, hearing you say good morning to your spouse, your kids, your mom, whomever — and is waiting for the opportunity for you to engage with Him so that he can “scoop you up.”

Every day, Satan, our opponent is on the court with us. From the moment we step out of bed, he is right there trying to knock us off our game, trying make a steal, or foul us out. How can we play the best defense against such an experienced opponent? We start each day on the attack. We defend our goals, our plans, our life. We go against Satan before he has a chance to make his first play.
