“Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:” -Hebrews 12:12-14
Feeling droopy and weak? It’s not the time to give up, it’s the time to see Christ working.
We are to run strong, run together, and run after peace and holiness.
-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon
“Droopy?” from Hebrews 12:12-14)
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” -Jeremiah 29:11
God’s will–as Elisabeth Elliot reminds us, “is always different from what [we] expect, always bigger, and, ultimately, infinitely, more glorious than [our] wildest imaginings.”
