This daily devotional is simple.
We post a scripture passage to read. We provide a link if you do not have a bible to read it on the web. If you are not fond of the version used, you can easily change to the version or translation you prefer.
We then post questions about the text you just read.
We do not have an answer key for the questions, the answer is found in your relationship with God.
With the scripture, we have a link to an independent Christian music artist and their song. Maybe the song is a cover of a well known worship song, maybe the song is an original, and sometimes the recording isn’t what you would find from a high end studio, but we believe there is something of value in the recording.
However you come about this devotional, we pray that your relationship is strengthened with God and that you grow in grace, love and truth.
