Overview

Why is it that our spiritual disciplines feel so dutiful and routine most of the time? We are called to delight in Him, to draw near and enjoy Him and yet that seems far from most of our realities.

By growing more familiar with being in His presence, one experiences more of His grace, moving us from duty to delight.
