Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”

Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”

Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”

~John 6:26-29

But Moses said to the LORD, "Since I speak with faltering lips, why would Pharaoh listen to me?"

~Exodus 6:30

Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech— unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

~2 Cor. 3:12-18

What God has said is true, even if I don't believe it. It is His work to help me believe, and mine to be transformed by His Spirit.

hey girl! I love your layouts too! I'd left a comment on Angel's blog yesterday, but I wanted you to know that design rocked! I need to do design more often as opposed to less often to be efficient tho, because I spend most of my time looking up things I've forgotten :-P At least this last template I used an existing stylesheet of mine and then tweaked all the graphics and colors, but even that took me a while...

My flickr photos don't display properly, have you ever encountered this?

Take care!

On that first passage... a few days ago I was just recalling how you and I would meet on the steps of the main building and read John aloud to each other the latter half of my time at PHC. Do you remember? Those were sweet times. I love you!
