Near His Throne

From Mark Wilson's post in Facebook:
"Well I know your trouble, O my servant true. You are very weary -- 
I was weary too. But that toil shall make you some day all my own, 
and the end of sorrow shall be near my throne." 
-- St. Andrew of Crete (trans. John Neale)

True Hope...Active Effort

Life has been more than interesting of late, with a barrage of issues both personal and in ministry that cause me to give pause and reflect.  This quote has been part of what is feeding my soul these days:

"True hope dwells on the possible, even when life seems to be a plot written by someone who wants to see how much adversity we can overcome.  True hope responds to the real world, to real life; it is an active effort." (Walter Anderson)
