We are a sisterhood. Whether single, married, young, old, healthy, wealthy, weak, or broke–we are sisters if we are both born again in Jesus Christ. On top of that, we’re a world-wide sisterhood! Pretty awesome, right?
And it’s a good thing we have each other, too, because our path through this world is not an easy one. We are supremely fortunate to have the privilege of fellowship in this in-between time…
…..this time of working while we wait to meet Him.
What is your journey like? Perhaps your Monday to Saturday is a never-ending cycle of laundry, meal prep, and driving. Maybe it’s filled with baby bottles and diapers. Or perhaps you’re picking your way carefully through the corporate world you were called to engage. Are you a missionary slogging through humid days? Are you an artist–lonely for the fellowship of other Christians doing the same thing? Maybe you’re an empty-nester on your knees for your adult children. Maybe you’re sick and fighting for your life, wishing you were just a little stronger. Perhaps you’re in college praying about which major to pursue and if the young man your dating is the one God has for you.
Whatever journey you are on, we all need to be reminded of His love, that it’s all worth it, that He is coming again, and that He has prepared a wonderful place for us.
So press on! Put one foot in front of the other–and walk toward Sunday…to that day of rest when we can sit for a moment, hopefully in a pretty place with the sun at our backs, and catch our breath.
Keep on, sister. Christ is for you.
By the way, I live in the sunny Central Valley of sunny California. I have one girl and three boys and a great husband. Two dog, Princess and Oliver, one tarantula (no name) and two hamsters, Hammie and Piglet, make up our busy home. The inside is full of books and legos while the outside yard is lined with roses. I have a peach tree with a malicious personality…it ripens its fruit the day before each family vacation… and a cherry tree that yields fruit every year against all odds. Altogether, we are just a family in a little house…in the middle of a big city.
