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

expanse of the heavens...

expanse of the heavens
If only for a moment,
take your eyes off yourself
and your circumstances,
off the ways of this world
and all rival claimants,
and look at who God is.
Ponder His mighty deeds.
This isn’t to say your soul
or circumstances aren’t important.
It simply means that you are
in the hands of an omnipotent God
whose ability to act on your behalf
is equaled only by His passionate
affection for you as His child,
whose strength is without end
and whose sovereignty
covers the expanse of the heavens.

God’s desire isn’t to minimize your life
and struggles and disappointments.
His intent is for you to gain hope,
knowing that nothing can wrench you
from the loving arms of a God like this!”
- Sam Storms
