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

His Will be done

“I have seen something else under the sun:
The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.”
- Ecclesiastes 9:11 NIV

“’Not by might nor by power,
but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty.”
- Zechariah 4:6 NIV

“Fellow Christians,
the will of God concerning us
is not only the wisest
and best thing in the world;
it is also the tenderest and the sweetest.
God’s will for us
is not only more loving than a father’s;
it is more tender than a mother’s.
It is true that God does oftentimes
revolutionize utterly our life plans
when we surrender ourselves to His will.
It is true that He does sometimes
require of us things that to others seem hard.
But when the will is once surrendered,
the revolutionized life plans
become just the plans
that are the easiest and most delightful.
Do not let Satan deceive you
into being afraid of God’s plans for your life.”
- R. A. Torrey
