What do you think an encounter with the Holy Spirit looks like? Do you expect it to be big and grandiose and somehow blaringly obvious? Going through the Experiencing God study again with our church this past fall was such a blessing.

A Love Relationship
How much do you truly trust God? How much do you really believe what He says? Many look at the Bible and think it’s just a book of rules.
