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

strength, patience,
and constancy

“I beseech thee, my most gracious God,
preserve me from the cares of this life
lest I should be too much entangled therein,
and from the many necessities of the body
lest I should be ensnared by pleasure,
and from whatsoever is an obstacle to the soul,
lest, broken by troubles, I should be overthrown.
Give me strength to resist, patience to endure,
and constancy to persevere.”
- Thomas A. Kempis
