Our future hope is hope for now

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-35apz-12d098b We hope now for the promises which are to come, visions of his word which will be reality.  We are not left merely to hope.  One day, we will have all we await.  Hope will be fulfilled and no longer have a place.

The lives we live

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ziq9w-12c7de8 Each has a life to live, a race to run.  Not every course, however, looks the same.  Let us put aside our own expectations and welcome the course God has for each of us, even if it looks very different than what we see in others.
