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

the miracle of now...

the miracle of now
(Second Life snapshot)

"For most of my life
I have thought of grace
as a hope of a bright tomorrow
in spite of the darkness of today –
and this is true.
In this way we are all like Pamela,
walking a road to grace –
hoping for mercy.
What we fail to realize
is that grace is more
than our destination,
it is the journey itself,
manifested in each breath
and with each step we take.
Grace surrounds us,
whirls about us like the wind,
falls on us like rain.
Grace sustains us on our journeys,
no matter how perilous they may be
and, make no mistake,
they are all perilous.
We need not hope for grace,
we merely need to open our eyes
to its abundance.
Grace is all around us,
not just in the hopeful future
but in the miracle of now."

- Richard Paul Evans
