Desire is not wrong. But desire that is disconnected from its source in God's desire-and therefore, focused on our own ways of finding life outside of God-is life destroying.

- Jeff Imbach

Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.” (2 Cor. 4:16 MSG)

On the days you are tempted to exchange mystery for certainty and wonder for dogma, Paul reminds us of a bigger picture.  We carry the wonder of God around in earthen vessels.  And while we may groan under the strain of being knocked down and battered by troubles, God is still up to something good within us.  My experience of the situation may say otherwise but there is a deeper reality at work… not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.

I can’t often see it and I sin by doubting its reality.  That’s why I need community-to help me see God at work… in me.  And I suspect you do too.

May God grant us the eyes and ears of faithful friends who join us in this wonderful journey of faith.

Because He Is Near,
