Many areas of life have felt up in the air over the past few months. In this passage from Colossians, what stuck out the most for me is the reminder that Christ was here before the beginning and will remain for all eternity. I am strengthened and filled with hope by holding on to such an anchor! Thank you!
Thank you for your reflection, Tiffany. Your Anchor holds. Deepest Peace today!
My meditations of late have drawn me into a growing awareness of the biggness (roomy) of God. The expanding of my “unknowing” seems to permiate everything I experience.
This passage (especially if I include vs 9 &10) clarifies the gospel and creation narrative as a divine process very succinctly for me.
Your podcast has helped me immensely.
“We pray that you’ll live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul—not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives.
It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us.”

So good to read your note. I too am grateful for God’s spaciousness and grace. Even as unknowing swallows up most of my knowing most days. Keep the faith, brother!
I started using this site in October. Thank you for its format and production. Your ministry is a blessing. The archive is a miraculous resource.Thanks be to God for your work. I hope your surgery has past and that you are on the mend.
Thank you, Donna! It’s good to hear from you. Surgery went well. Now I’m in the long slog of recovering. Deepest Peace!
