Today I'm joining the fun with Lisa-Jo Baker and others as we write for 5 minutes on one word. Today's word is - Join.
This can be a hard concept for me. I have a tendency to be very independent, to walk alone, to take the road less traveled. And yet God calls his children to work as a body. And body parts do not function well alone. And so I find myself on a journey toward less independence and more inter-dependence. And yet, to do this requires a certain amount of trust, of tearing down walls carefully built, and this can be difficult and painful. I find myself pulling back, hesitant to join, afraid of getting hurt. But God continues to gently work with me, encouraging me to take one step at a time, as I join with others in the work He would have us do together. It's a process, this joining. But I am learning it is also a blessing, and so I continue to work at it, one little step at a time.
