72 Precious Words that Define Our Personal Relationship with God

Posted on May 2, 2011

So often, my relationship with the Lord is like a text message conversation— intermittent, abbreviated, and distant.

How many of us need our personal relationship with the Lord restored? When I say “relationship,” I mean a romantic one. Just us and the Lord. The only way to cultivate such a relationship is  by spending time with Him. There is no shortcut.

But the intensity of our relationship is not just determined by the amount of time we spend with Him. Our time must be quality time. We must eat, digest, and assimilate the Lord to the point that we become one with Him. Without spending this kind of time with the Lord, it is impossible for Him to grow in us.

I can not take credit for writing this list, but I can testify that these precious words have enriched my relationship with Him.

They are organized in six groups of twelve. Also, I created a wallpaper with these 72 precious words. It is formatted in standard or widescreen(16:9) resolution. Right click to download.
