It’s so good to be home, we both agreed. Each of us, in different circumstances, transitioned in our careers and found ourselves working from home and being an everyday participant in our grandchildren’s lives. Neither of us were planning for this outcome, but looking back we realized God had orchestrated this timing and as we talked, our appreciation for this special season of life increased. Before we left we clasped hands and prayed thanking God for this time in our lives, for our friendship and gave Him some practical ” I-need-you-Lord-today” requests.
The sweetness of Christian fellowship means that we can talk about the reality, struggle and heart aches in our lives and we can also bear witness to how God has turned around bad circumstances for good. We share joy, we laugh. We encourage each other and strengthen one another’s faith. It is heart-to-heart. Fellowship – true fellowship in which we are sharing about what Jesus is doing in our lives today, yesterday, and in this season. Much more than visiting or socializing, fellowship is a precious bond that can be described in terms of spiritual chocolate – it’s just “the best.” We are designed for relationships and fellowship fills us up to the brim.
God is active and working in our lives today. By sharing what our Heavenly Father is doing, how we are responding, and what treasures we are finding in His Word, we speak on the level of “brothers and sisters”. That special relationship we enjoy is worthy of celebration and thanks. Fellowship is heart-to-heart.
