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

July 17, 2011 (only He can quench)

only He can quench

“Do not spoil what you have
by desiring what you have not;
remember that what you now have was
once among the things you only hoped for.”
- Epicurus

“God has created each of us
with a thirst that only He can quench.
French philosopher Pascal called it
a God-shaped vacuum in our hearts
that only He can fill. Or as Augustine put it,
‘Our souls are restless until they find their rest in Thee.’
Man is perpetually seeking.
To whatever degree we don't know
the unseen and eternal realm;
we seek answers in the seen and temporal.
We look for eternal answers among temporal things.
But we discover that they cannot provide them.”
- Dan Stone
