It’s interesting how life can blindside us. Some friends of our have been hit by a full on storm in their lives. When the people you love are hurting you hurt too. Suffering causes us to reorient our lives. It causes us to consider what really matters. It forces us to be intentional.
We recently talked about what real community looks like in our small group. We shared practical examples of how God was leading us to or helping us to live out genuine community. Then today happened. My husband and I have been thrust into a situation with our friends that will cause us to re-determine what matters most. It won’t be easy. But it will remind us to invest our lives in things that are eternal. It will cause us to once again give up our selfish ways.
Would you pray that we can reflect Christ in this situation with our friends in an intentional way? Feel free to share any prayer requests you have below and I’ll be sure to pray for you as well.
