I find it a lot easier to talk to God now that my picture of Him has been restored. I know I'll never be able to comprehend His love for me, but I can grasp just a tiny portion of it, and that helps me a lot. I feel like God is my friend, now, like I can talk to Him and He won't turn away or tune me out, like people so often do.
I can't believe how True Spirituality has impacted my life! I have so much more joy and God seems ever present. He comes to my mind more often and I find myself wanting to bring Him into conversations more, which almost seems odd, considering that before this study I was uncomfortable whenever God surfaced in a conversation. It's so amazing! I'm beginning to learn that God is all I need. Even though I used to tell God that He was all I wanted or needed, because I didn’t have a real relationship with Him, I didn’t truly believe it.

The fourth section in True Spirituality about serving others in love really brought to light how blessed I am to already share authentic community. My only real friend outside God and my family is a girl my age with pretty much the same beliefs (except I'm Calvinist and she's not), so we share practically everything with each other. This is such a blessing, and to think we never recognized it in the nine nears we've been friends.
