Good morning journey companion,
There is such beauty in being part of community. We often think when God tells us be fruitful and multiply it means do good deeds and have children.
What if God meant be in community and be a blessing to one another? Doing this will bear much fruit and cause multiplication. The fruit would be rich relationships that have the corner stone of Jesus which is love. From pure honest love births more pure and honest love.
Our fruit can be people we hold space for, people we engage with, and people we stay in community with in and out of every season.
This wasn’t actually always my thought process until I experienced this last week of my life. I actually began to value every person God has put in my path. We have sharpened each other, encouraged each other, corrected each other, but most importantly we have loved each other. Not always the way we expected but exactly the way God intended.
We are rich when we are in community. Conversations with people help us grow. We begin to see things differently love differently and embrace new ideas. We also find God’s love for us in those moments. His truth and wisdom wrapped up in grace and mercy. How amazing is God to divinely create relationships as vessels to bring us closer to Him.
Heavenly Father I pray if we aren’t in the community you desire us to be in that You move us immediately. Father I pray that we learn to be more vulnerable and transparent with those you place in our lives.
Father let us not carry shame and guilt into conversations. Let us not hold on to insecurities and comparison that leads to jealousy. Father increase our vision of you and what community is and how you want us to walk that out.
Father your will be done in our lives transform us and make us whole. I pray your mighty will in Jesus name amen.
