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

get the message

The storms of life are one way the Lord
uses to get our attention.
Everything else is reduced in importance,
blotted out, and then in the immense silence
that so often follows,
our thoughts are finally turned to Him.

“God whispers to us in our pleasures,
speaks to us in our conscience,
but shouts in our pains:
It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world”
- C. S. Lewis

God is still speaking and is always
trying to get our attention…
the “storms of life”may be the most obvious
and the loudest
but He speaks to us constantly
in much more subtle ways.

It is possible too, that His communication to us
is so obvious that we miss it…
similar to searching for the hat
which has been upon our head all along.

“Every happening, great and small,
is a parable whereby God speaks to us,
and the art of life is to get the message.”
- Malcolm Muggeridge
