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

direction you are moving
(chess and life)

If we are good at it,
we can perhaps see a few moves ahead.
Why not give God control…
He can see through to the end
and is capable
of turning our bad choices into victory.

It is far better for us to give Him control
in the early game otherwise we will suffer
the consequences of those bad moves
we made under our own control.

Even so, once we give Him control,
we gain new life for the rest of the game
and our victory is assured.

“The great thing in this world
is not so much where you stand,
as in what direction you are moving.”
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
