With us in spirit...

Today (Friday) Belinda is hoping to take the train from Alvechurch into Redditch. If she is able to make it, then she will do some posting on Whatever He Says from an Internet cafe. She says she has some posts ready. With that in mind, and sure that there will be something forthcoming from her later today, (but just in case there isn't!) I'm going to share just a bit of scripture. I read it one day this week and heard it in her voice, not St. Paul's... :) I know these words could easily have come from her own heart...

5For though I am away from you in body, yet I am with you in spirit, delighted at the sight of your [standing shoulder to shoulder in such] orderly array and the firmness and the solid front and steadfastness of your faith in Christ [that leaning of the entire human personality on Him in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness].
6As you have therefore received Christ, [even] Jesus the Lord, [so] walk (regulate your lives and conduct yourselves) in union with and conformity to Him.
7Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving!

Colossians 2: 5-7 The Amplified Bible.
