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

inner strength

“I know somehow that time will heal this sorrow,
This bitter grief, and that the years will bring
Forgetfulness and peace, that some tomorrow
Will hold no memory of my suffering.
And I believe that there will be a blurring
Of the jagged edges of the wounds I bear,
And in my heart again will be the stirring
Of laughter that has long been absent there.
I know all this, yet still cannot remember;
I cannot see beyond this wall of tears.
Yet as the falling ashes cool an ember,
So will my heart find comfort through the years.
I know--but God, dear God, my need is great!
Give me the inner strength this day to wait.”
- Grace Noll Crowell
