Part II - Conditioning and Positioning Ourselves to Hear From God. So as promised (although I'm a little late but who's watching?) here's the second installment of "God, is that you?" Now I'm no pastor. Or teacher. I'm just a girl who likes to blog. I'm definitely not the resident expert on the Bible or …
