God is present

God is always present and available.
To know this inside out is a solid foundation for a prosperous life.

In this course you will learn valuable tools to become still and aware of God’s loving presence.
You may allow yourself to be synchronised with God’s heart
and experience that it is the power of God that makes things happen.

Our action in the first instance is to say yes to God’s “yes” to us and to accept God’s invitation to communion with Him.
Our lives can then be a response to this.
