This is a book that needs to be read...
and then pondered...
there is SO MANY AMAZING thoughts in it!
If we want to talk with God face to face then we need to change from "saying our prayers" to "pouring out our soul to God."
"We (need to) always pour out our spiritual and emotional needs, but also our adorations, gratitudes, and loves."
When we "pour out" it leaves us empty so God an "pour in" the blessings.
If we want to talk with God face to face we need to be reaching through wrestling just like Enos. Instead of saying "I must go and pray" we must we willing to "go and wrestle before the Lord."
If we want to talk with God face to face then we need to be willing to "reach."
