"Nearly twenty years ago, I saw a picture of a shipwreck. I was in the water along with others among the wreckage, and Jesus was standing on the beach. I clawed my way to the beach, and I heard Jesus tell me to look back out into the water at those who were still struggling. He said that the beach was His presence and that I was to go back out there and help those struggling to find their way to the Beach of His Presence. I pray that God will use this book to accomplish just that to help you desire and find His presence. May your journey with God take first place in your life, and may you enjoy His sweet presence more frequently and intimately each day as you walk with Him. Deanne Hill "This book is not about theology, but rather is about relationship: Relationship with the Lord. Used as a daily devotional, it will enrich your life and remind you to listen to the Lord, rather than to simply recite your shopping list of requests and needs. Deanne is my sister-in-law, and I've observed her life for decades. She is a deep woman of prayer, who lives what she writes. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with the Lord." - Jan Hill, Co-founder of Family Foundations Intl.
