One Year Bible

I know this was not what you were expecting, but if you have read Feel you know why this is here.  We must transform our emotional life by immersing ourselves in truth (focus, know, value and believe)I am not talking about “alarm clock spirituality” here, but a ravenous hunger that can only be satisfied by feeding on God’s Word – because you know that in Him you will find the new heart that you are looking for.  Buying a One Year Bible in a really readable and powerful translation is a great place to start. — Buy
