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

see clearly

“Every Christian who struggles with depression
struggles to keep their hope clear.
There is nothing wrong
with the object of their hope –
Jesus Christ is not defective
in any way whatsoever.
But the view from the struggling Christian's heart
of their objective hope could be
obscured by disease and pain,
the pressures of life,
and by Satanic fiery darts shot against them…
All discouragement and depression
is related to the obscuring of our hope,
and we need to get those clouds
out of the way and fight like crazy
to see clearly how precious Christ is.”
- John Piper
