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

February 02, 2011 (renew our vision)

"One of the most poisonous
of all Satan’s whispers is simply,
‘Things will never change.’
That lie kills expectation,
trapping our heart forever in the present.
To keep desire alive and flourishing,
we must renew our vision for what lies ahead.
Things will not always be like this.
Jesus has promised to ‘make all things new.’
Eye has not seen, ear has not heard
all that God has in store for his lovers,
which does not mean
‘we have no clue so don’t even try to imagine,’
but rather, you cannot out dream God.
Desire is kept alive by imagination,
the antidote to resignation.
We will need imagination,
which is to say, we will need hope."
- John Eldredge
