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 12, 2011 (so we take comfort)

so we take comfort

"Many things -
such as loving, going to sleep,
or behaving unaffectedly -
are done worst
when we try hardest to do them."
- C.S. Lewis

“The secret of contentment
is the realization that life is a gift,
not a right.”
– Author Unknown

“Let your character or moral disposition
be free from love of money
[including greed, avarice, lust,
and craving for earthly possessions]
and be satisfied with your present
[circumstances and with what you have];
for He [God] Himself has said,
I will not in any way fail you
nor give you up nor leave you without support.
[I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not
in any degree leave you helpless
nor forsake nor let [you] down
(relax My hold on you)!
[Assuredly not!]
So we take comfort and are encouraged
and confidently and boldly say,
The Lord is my Helper;
I will not be seized with alarm
[I will not fear or dread or be terrified].
What can man do to me?”
- Hebrew 13:5,6 AMP
