"...he bent down, and wrote with his finger on the ground..."

Holy Spirit has irrepressible hope. You can’t discourage him!

—Travis Gay #theawakeningathens

its your breath in our lungs

from shadows to substance

"As you received Jesus, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, abounding in thanksgiving.” 
- Colossians 2 (ESV)

"Go ahead with what you’ve been given. You’ve received Jesus, now live him. You’re deeply rooted in him. You’re well constructed on him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out. Quit studying the subject and start living it, and let your living spill over into thanksgiving.” 
- Colossians 2 (MSG)

hope against hope — when natural hope that has limitations is swallowed up by divine hope that knows no limitations. it’s moving from living with a positive attitude about life to seeing prophetically the purposes and plans of God.

—Bill Johnson (via getupgetout)
