SEASONS COME AND GO in our lives. The foliage of spiritual journey changes through our times of turning as well. But what remains, what abides, is that place where our lives join to Christ. In that place we find ourselves connected in this time for all time to God.
Join my life to you, O God, in ways ever deeper and ever stronger. And may my living draw from you the hope and love that renew and transform me ever more in your image. In Jesus Christ. Amen.
– John Indermark

No testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13, NRSV
