It’s our turn to anticipate!

The pleasure of discovering wild black raspberries

God promises in Scripture that there is something better coming for those who put their hope in the resurrection of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Romans 10:13

For this light and momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

1 Peter 5:10
