Earlier this week one of my fellow sisters and GSD’s, Christine, asked if anyone in the group wanted to gather together via video chat to pray for our team.
I have felt and seen the power of people praying together and so I said I would join in. It was over my lunch hour time – so it was perfect.
And then I started to panic.
I wasn’t sure how to get the Google Hangout dealie to work, and the more I thought about it I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get it to work.
I mean these are all amazing ladies that have become friends….but wouldn’t it be weird having our faces all on the screens, and what if I prayed wrong or something like that.
I figured that a technology “fail” was as good as an excuse as any – and worked a little later past noon than planned….thinking I would bail last minute.
But the Holy Spirit nudged me ever so gently and I rushed home and got the plugin installed on my laptop. And I waited. I was invited to the “meeting”…but didn’t want to be the first to join.
Which is so counter intuitive….haven’t I always longed to be “picked”…to be part of a group – even since I was a young girl….and here I was potentially letting this opportunity pass me by?
I know…I have issues! 🙂
So with all the courage I had in me I hit “Join”….and there we all were. 10 of us (11 if you count Delonna who had legitimate computer problems – not made up ones like I did)
And then it happened….
Christine started us out and we all took turns praying. (Side note – I was maybe obsessing just a little about if I should close my eyes or not….I’m sure you can understand??!!)
It really was amazing. Women connected, through this little group called the God Sized Dream Team, united in prayer for our team and one another…sharing our struggles and lifting them up.
God moves, He hears and it was felt!
And I almost missed it out of fear.
After it was done and we had gone about our day a message feed appeared on FB – sharing our thanks for the time together….and you know what? Several people felt the same as I had…afraid of what to expect…one sweet friend (I won’t name names) said she was going to use the excuse of cleaning her basement to avoid this time…. 😉 (I LOVED that btw)
All because the enemy was attacking each of us in our own way…..telling us we had something to be afraid of….when really he was the one afraid.
Because there is power in numbers and God heard us yesterday. He was present and I won’t miss it again because of fear!!
Has there ever been a time where you missed something because of fear? Stand in the truth today friends and fear no more!!
