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 could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
