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

coming together
photo by Erin Doyle

There are many times when
doing a devotional
that I take a photo and find out later
the true value of the capture.

“Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready
to have somebody click the shutter.”
- Ansel Adams

Afterwards, when putting words to the image…
I am surprised quite often by finding
just the right words (or quote) when I first
open a book or do a simple search in Google.
It all comes together as if
I am being guided by some unseen influence.
We Christians know that influence by the name of
the Holy Spirit.

“The sovereign God can arrange things
so as to have us read a specific passage
on the very day we most need to hear its message.
So the fact that we may read
that passage on that day
may not be simply a coincidence.
It may well be an instance
of direct divine guidance.”
- Allth Fernando

Even when it takes
a longer time to put together
a particular devotional
I find His guidance
leading me to something
He wants to show me first…
something to grow by or learn…
for now or for the future.
