Does the Bible speak to you or is it just words on parchment? Hebrews 4:12-13

Good morning everyone,
Starting the week refreshed after a decent nights sleep!  More importantly, I was able to spend some incredible quality time with my wonderful wife in Tucson over the weekend.  Hard to see her leave me on Sunday evening but I feel very Blessed to have had a 3 day weekend filled with adventures!  With that said, there seems to be a letdown when our adventures end.  When there is a disconnection from those that mean the most to us, there is a sense of loss unless we have something to replace those losses.  If you don't know where to go to get recharged or refreshed, let me encourage you to go to the Word!  It is simply not a collection of words from God.  It is a vehicle for communicating ideas; it is living, life-changing, and dynamic as it works in us.  In Hebrews 4:12-13, we are told, 'For the Word of God is full of living power.  It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires.  It exposes us for what we really are.  Nothing in all creation can hide from Him.  Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes.  This is the God to whom we must explain all that we have done.'  When we read the Word, it is as if God reveals everything about who He is!  It is the ultimate story about Love!  The Love of the Heavenly Father for all of His children.  He created you and He desires to spend time with you so there can be fellowship and the Word is His way of revealing who is to you!
Your brother in Christ,
