"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

My hope is in You.

“We must try to keep the mind in tranquility.
For just as the eye which constantly shifts its gaze,
now turning to the right or to the left,
now incessantly peering up or down,
cannot see distinctly what lies before it,
but the sight must be fixed firmly
on the object in view
if one would make his vision of it clear;
so too man’s mind
when distracted by his countless worldly cares
cannot focus itself distinctly on the truth.”
- St. Basil the Great

“Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro:
He bustles about, but only in vain;
he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it.
But now, Lord, what do I look for?
My hope is in you.”
- Psalm 39: 6,7 NIV
