I had been a Christian for 23 years and in full time Christian ministry for 20 years before I awakened to the fact that God has a deeper priority for my life than service for Him. His purpose and highest priority for me is to experience relationship with Him daily through His love and grace. What a difference! Nothing compares to the joy and pleasure of my relationship with God since this discovery and my experiencing intimacy with God is still growing. —David English
