At church this morning our pastor talked about community.
I got to thinking about just how blessed I am to have a wonderful group of women surrounding me during the highs and lows of life.
This group of amazing gals met together for the first time only 1 year ago. We started meeting bi-monthly for an early morning walk followed by coffee and devotions.
The results of our lives intersecting has been nothing short of miraculous. Fear has been conquered through prayer. Insecurities have been voiced in a safe place. Love has been given and received despite personality differences.
Ultimately, Christ has been on display.
And I for one will never be the same because of what these women have taught me. They are each jewels of a rare and unique value that cannot be compared.
I do not take this privilege of godly friendship for granted. So many look for authentic Christian relationships and get disappointed in their search because it takes a while.
Let me encourage you to keep at it. I was lonely for 3 years before I found this safe place of godly women. It can happen to you too. Just keep looking. And if you don’t find a group where you belong, then start your own group.
It’s not easy. Anything worthwhile requires work. But it is SO worth it.
