Community = Hearts connected
We live in an ever changing world, we are consistently pulled in many directions. Bombarded by social media. But one thing that never changes is the need for community, the need to belong. It comes from a longing deep inside us, placed there by the Creator.
True community can be rare and elusive to find, The journey we have had over the last few years has made us realise what true community looks, feels and is like. To be surrounded by people that truly believe in you and accept you, as you are, is like finding gold, so precious and beautiful but hard to find.
True community is about having people around you that passionately believe in YOU and that see the gold inside you, even when you don’t see it. This is how we are meant to live life.
'And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another' Hebrew 10:24-25
Dare to let someone look into your heart. Dare to let the closed spaces within you be opened and transformed in new ways that make you stronger and braver.
Dare to let someone catch a glimpse of your God given mission in this world.
Dare to start to move forward not worrying how small or awkward the steps, maybe because these tentative first steps can lead to big, glorious things.
Dare to focus on how God sees you, not how you see yourself.
Dare to be vulnerable.
Dare to be the real you.
Let your heart connect with others... reach out to those around you.
love well - live well.
Looking forward to the journey with the wonderful people that come across our path.
