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

in our weakness

The cat on the lap is Kokomo.
Up until a few weeks ago
he would never jump up on your lap
let alone become so at peace there.

Ever since he had kneecap surgery
when he was just a kitten,
unstable, soft surfaces like a lap
were off-limits for him.

The surgery was several years ago.

If a cat can change its habits,
guided by our gentle spirit… overcoming fear,
so dramatically… so we too can change
our repetitive habits
with the help of the Holy Spirit.

“For you did not receive a spirit
that makes you a slave again to fear,
but you received the Spirit of sonship.”
- Romans 8, 15 NIV

”In the same way,
the Spirit helps us in our weakness.”
- Romans 8, 26 NIV
