Five Minute Free Writes – Every week I join a special group of writers to write for FIVE MINUTES. No editing. No revising. Just WRITE. Each week the prompt is revealed Thursday evening. You can find more information here.
This week our prompt is:
Unite. Together. Community. Last night my group of women (five to be exact) met together to finish another study. Together we’ve met four four years. Four years to study God’s Word. It started with me. Then I invited a couple of friends. Then they invited a few friends. We’ve met every other Thursday for four years. We do at least three studies a year. We’ve done book studies and Bible studies, but this last study. Seamless by Angie Smith, was one of our favorites.
Together we saw the Scripture unite. Woven together with a single thread: The Gospel. As we dove in, our hearts opened in new ways. We wept together. We laughed together. Our group is small, but small communities are still communities God can use.
Together we are stronger Christians. Together, united, we find love and encouragement. It is the bond of God and His Word holding us together, but today I am so thankful for their love for me. For their love of each other. We all attend different churches, but really one church. One God. Together.
Life can be a lonely thing. But God designed us to seek out companionship. I am so thankful for these women who stepped in and became my friends through the years. I am so grateful for their wisdom. For their insight. For their passion and hearts. I am a better Christian because of these women.
May God always give me, no matter where I am, a small group of women to lift me up spiritually. May God surround you with friends who will lead you to the Word.
