What greater joy is there when like minded gather in one accord?
Time passes by without a concept of its purpose when in a moment of fellowship with others.
Have you ever been in a setting like that where your there with others and your talking and time stands still for that moment and we just enjoy the company and conversation of each other. Where you can be open, vulnerable and true about who you are with them? Honestly, last night was my first time of having open, honest, true and real fellowship with a group of others of like mind.
Being in a room that the environment is saturated not only in the presence of the spirit of the living God, but also saturated with love, compassion, and grace.
Girls nights can be amazing! Simple and pure to bring each to a place of wholeness on a level that may not been there prior to the gathering. Environments that are condusive to baring ones soul of the good, bad and the ugly are rare finds in this world.
Some environments that I have been in the moments that I have begun to bare my soul to another they begin to tell me things that shut off my humanity and caused me to wall out emotions around them ever again. They couldn’t handle my issue or even touch my issue with any words as their words became more daggers than balm to the soul. To be of compassion is to guard your words and think on them before they come out and examine how would they be received.
If you are told that your too emotional, you let things bother you too much, or the fact that its life to not to let it get to you, then how is that a genuine person to bare your soul to? Take notice for if they go through they want your undivided ear to hear all their woes in life and give no wisdom in return, for if you are able to share wisdom they are like who are you to speak on my problems. Yet they seem to know all the answers to your problems.
Be careful of who you fellowship with is what I am learning in this life. Some will use for their own benefit. BUT there are some genuine loving, caring, compassionate people as I can attest to in this season of my life that are God given. They listen unjudgingly and offer compassion then begin to expound on ways to help through problems and issues. Now these are the people worth fighting to keep around.
Cherish special times of intamacy with people that are God given. I know I sure will.
