Living Life Together

“Not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭25‬ ‭NIV‬‬

You know the quote, No man is an island.. Well, in a way, I think the pandemic and the rise of virtual everything has changed the truth and reality of that quote. Because, truth is, many people not only began living their lives as tiny, isolated islands, but are continuing to do so.

I mean, there’s virtual church. You can work remotely. You can order just about anything, including groceries, online and have it delivered to your door within hours, to days, depending on where you live. We don’t have to interact directly with anyone – unless we want to…

But, honestly, I don’t think this is how God intended us to live our lives.

We need each other. We need interaction. We need direct contact.

“As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.” Proverbs‬ ‭27‬:‭17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Life is so chock full of ups and downs, twists and turns, that when I’m down, you’re up! And vice versa. We need each other.

I love having a supportive group of ladies whom I can call on any time of the day or night. These ladies will pray with me, for me. They will encourage me. They will tell me when I’m in the wrong and need to course correct. They will listen. Quite frankly, we cannot do life alone.

I pray that I offer the same love of God to others that others show to me. I pray that I live out the Word of God as I see it lived out before me.

I pray that I never get too comfortable on my own, in my isolated little corner of the world, that I forget the joys of living life together.

    1. That truly is sad. Iron definitely strengthens iron. As I grow older and as the days seem to become darker and colder, I am learning firsthand how much we truly need each other.
