A Woman's Toolbox

for Establishing

Intimacy with God

 

Introduction

One of my hearts desires is to inspire, uplift and encourage, scorned and hurting women, because I too, was a scorned and hurt woman. I learned that the Bible has all of the tools and equipment that we will ever need to live a prosperous, healthy, happy, and holy life. A life that is pleasing unto the Lord.

     I am so thankful for my Grandmother's teachings and for her sharing with me the Word of God and how important it is to have a relationship with God. She would often say to me; "Tonya, I can pray for you, but you need to learn how to pray for yourself. And you need to establish your own personal intimate relationship with God." I remember thinking, intimate with God? That's not right. But we can have an intimate relationship with God. We actually need it. God can be whatever we need Him to be in our lives. He's a comforter, a healer, a deliverer and a friend. God will be whatever you allow Him to be in your life.

     In this Devotional, I share scriptures that have helped me and strengthened me while going through some very difficult times in my life. I found peace and comfort in these scriptures, and I pray that they resonate with you as they have with me while on my journey of establishing intimacy with God.
