No one remains unchanged after theyve been touched by God. Through experiential encounters with our loving God, we gain intimate knowledge of how much he really cares about every detail of our lives. As we seek to know him in a more personal and meaningful way, we discover that he is beside us in every situation, which changes us forever. As humans, we tend to learn more from our failures than from our successes. God uses our failures as well as our successes to help us grow spiritually. We grow and develop spiritually in the same way we grow and develop physicallyboth are processes that occur over time. This is the story of one persons gradual experiential realization that what God says in his Word is true, that it is applicable to our current situations, and that he is intimately involved in every aspect of our lives.
