Community has been on my heart since I attended Allume in October. I have always had a longing to build community, but I hadn’t yet felt the calling to really implement it in my own home town. It is scary and exciting all at the same time. We are introducing some really fun things at our church here in MN and I wait in eager anticipation to see what God will do with and through all of it.
I thought that was what I was going to write about this month, until I experienced community in a completely overwhelming and different way recently. It was unexpected and born out of a trial, but sometimes community looks like a rally cry. And through this I have learned that we are stronger together.
I felt desperate.
But even with the people that I am most comfortable with, I want there to be the appearance of having it all together. (<====Click to Tweet)
Especially as the “leader” of this fine group of women, if I shared my reality…what would they all think?
But God has been showing me all year that I must have full dependence on Him, and sometimes it means that I need to be willing to ask for help.
So I sucked up my pride and sent a message to the women on this team here at GSD’s.
Honestly, I just got chills again as I think about what happened next…..
I am sharing the rest of this story over at God-sized Dreams today. Will you join me there?!
