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

Waiting can be hard, however...

"I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.”
- Psalm 130:5 NIV

"Those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.” 
- Isaiah 40:31 NIV

"If the Lord Jehovah makes us wait,
let us do so with our whole hearts;
for blessed are all they that wait for Him.
He is worth waiting for.
The waiting itself is beneficial to us:
it tries faith, exercises patience, trains submission,
and endears the blessing when it comes.”

- Charles Spurgeon


"Biblically, waiting is not just something
we have to do until we get what we want.
Waiting is part of the process
of becoming what God wants us to be.”

– John Ortberg
