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

true peace...

true peace

Lord, make me childlike.
Deliver me from the urge to compete
with another for place or prestige or position.
I would be simple and artless as a little child.
Deliver me from pose and pretense.
Forgive me for thinking of myself.
Help me to forget myself
and find my true peace
in beholding Thee.
That Thou mayest answer this prayer
I humble myself before Thee.
Lay upon me Thy easy yoke
of self-forgetfulness that through it
I may find rest. Amen.”

- A. W. Tozer
(The Pursuit of God)
