We are all in the same ship sailing towards Heaven’s shores. It is one of the many ways that God has set up the body of Christ to be able to encourage one another. He knows our humanity and he knows that life can hurt so badly down here. When we come together we see and hear about His faithfulness, provision and healing and it lifts our faith.
We share our stories and the heart leans in a little closer and listens more intently:
- • She experienced the very same thing.
- • I too feel so lonely sometimes.
- • Wow. Her heartache has lifted. It’s possible.
- • There are days I don’t want to get out of bed either.
- • I can be free of this?
When the struggles and pain of life visit us we can feel so alone. We can easily shrink back and hide in the midst of our busy lives. Whether it has been sin, shame, or just plain distance from the Lord it is there. We feel disconnected. Discouragement, weariness, even bitterness can creep into our souls and we find ourselves going through the days without the strength, faith and promise of God’s hope in our hearts.
We need fresh wind in our sails--new perspective. We need to be reminded of all that is ours in Jesus. We need to be among friends.
That is why this gathering is named just that. During our time together there will be rich bible teaching, powerful stories, comedic relief and comforting music. There will also be a time of worship and prayer.
Come be Among Friends—and bring yours with you too.
