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

be led forth in peace
photo by Lee Keefer

You are in a place somewhat sheltered,
with, what appears to be,
a firm support beneath you.
Stopping here for awhile,
You look ahead.
Hazardous conditions may be in your future
and who knows what lies ahead around
the next curve?

Staying put will never get you
to where you want to go
and your current protection
and support may soon
be a thing of the past.

Trusting in God and letting Him be your guide,
dangerous and painful as it may be,
will provide you with beauty,
blessings, and rewards
that you would have never anticipated
when acting under your own strength
and wisdom.

Follow Him to a place of
eternal joy and peace.

“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”
- Isaiah 55:12 NIV
