The verses I memorized for years were great, but they were always meant for someone else, never for me. As I wrote in my story on the s of my Bible, He wrote His story inside my soul. Healing became real to me. Redemption became real to me. Freedom became real to me. As I viewed my time in Scripture as a conversation back and forth, I found a God who responds to me…. I get it.
