Your Daily Devotional was very powerful today I felt your words were directed to reach my heart. Thank you Bruce
Can I please ask – what bible do you use or recommend? Thank you for all that you do
Hi Tania The simple answer is as follows: I use the New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition which has the extra books. The NRSV which does not have the extra book is used by Protestants.
The translation of the words are the same in both.
The more complicated answer is understanding what the extra books are and why there a difference but that is a longer answer.
Hope this helps.
Comments and Reflections After watching the message take some time to reflect on the following:

I firmly believe we do need to keep trying, but, as you say, without God, we cannot do it alone, and being able to surrender to God to help turns the impossible into the possible.
