Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

do not doubt

Has the Holy Spirit been talking with you?
Are you at the point in your faith
where you have made the right choice,
but the temptations to look back to your old life
are just too great?

Don't be like Lot's wife...
increasing the world's salt supply is not worth it.

"There is a point at which everything becomes simple
and there is no longer any question of choice,
because all you have staked will be lost
if you look back.
Life's point of no return."
- Dag Hammarskjold

"...but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."
- Matthew 10:22 KJV

The Lord allows U-turns
but don't make yourself dizzy
going in circles
because at some point
you may fall.

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers,
whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith
develops perseverance.
Perseverance must finish its work
so that you may be mature and complete,
not lacking anything.
If any of you lacks wisdom,
he should ask God,
who gives generously to all without finding fault,
and it will be given to him.
But when he asks,
he must believe and not doubt,
because he who doubts
is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
That man should not think
he will receive anything from the Lord;
he is a double-minded man,
unstable in all he does."
- James 1:2-8 NIV
