The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride. - Ecclesiastes 7:8 (NIV)
Over two years ago, I bought a small fig tree and planted it in the garden. It didn’t do well and looked as if it were dying. I dug it up and put it in a large pot. It stood in the pot for a long time, struggling to thrive....
God only requires me to take one step at a time.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
