What if I hit send and I get no reply? What if Wednesday comes, and the coffee is set out with a dozen mugs beside, but mine is the only one that’s full?
What if I find myself sitting here alone on the couch with my Bible and a lesson I had hoped to study with friends at my side? What if I spent weeks digging into the Word and preparing a study meant for a body, but end up with just a heart laid bare and no one here to lift it up? There’s hesitation in my heart and a lifted plea for reassurance,
because it really does feel risky to walk this faithful road sometimes.
Yet still my fingers settle gently down, pressing the word 'enter' and praying the Holy Spirit will be carried along with the invitation, to enter hearts, and draw us together.
There are nine of us, and we each have different reasons for saying yes,
but ‘yes’ is all He asked from us.
And ‘yes’ is where the faithful see the fruit...
He will meet us here, just as He had planned to all along. Yes Lord, I will trust you, even when my heart skips a beat and my tummy turns and I sense an awkward silence in the room. Then, I realize saying yes felt risky for them too, and I begin with prayer.
Joining LisaJo again…
The Word this week is quite appropriately… Risk.
