I have been wondering all week what I will post. It's been a busy week for me for various reasons and I had put off posting until today because I was procrastinating! As I think over this week and the ways in which I have seen God in my days there seems to be a reoccurring theme. This week I have seen God consistently in my brothers and sisters in Christ. Let me explain...

The week began with a birthday party. At this party there were people that I haven't seen since I left the church I used to attend, 3 years ago! Yet there was no awkwardness. Everyone was very happy to see each other and it was as if we had never parted ways. Genuinely happy, catching up with each others lives with true love and concern. This week I also ran into a couple of people I haven't seen in a while when I was out running errands and experienced the same thing. Last night I was on the phone with my mom and she was sharing with me about some answers to prayer that my great aunts had experienced. One of them was praying for the other one in a specific way and the one who was being prayed for did not know it until she called to share how God had accomplished something in her life!

This is the beauty of the body of Christ. No matter where we are, what church we have left, or how different our lives are His love is our common bond. His love gives us the ability to meet each other again when years and distance have separated us and pick up where we left off as though we had just been together yesterday!

This week I have been touched by seeing God in the love and communion of His people. How about you?

  1. I saw God in many faces this past week the faces of Brothers and Sisters who attended Flame this week what an uplifting and worshipful experience this week. I gained a lot of spiritual insights also. I had the privilege of being apart of. I can't wait to go another Flame class. God is so good.
