When you think of God or Jesus, what first comes to mind?

Creator of the Universe, Son of God, Lord and Savior, Holy Spirit… possibly Father and Son?

These are all good things and certainly true however it’s not the only way He wants us to think of Him. How about friend?

Having a healthy relationship with God is also about friendship and companionship. Experiencing each other as friends do every day. The feelings associated with friendship are powerful and very real for us… and they should be with the Creator and Sustainer of life.

Today on Strong By Design, host Jared Haley speaks with his friend, Dave Powers, a brilliant singer and songwriter from the Denver area who has a deep connection with the Holy Spirit.


“God gave you one mouth and two ears so you can listen twice as much as you talk.” -- Dave Powers
