I don’t have the time, I make the time. My dear friends and I have been meeting every other week for three years to do Walking with Purpose Bible studies. We began casually, all stay at home moms needing something to do that involved other people older than 5. So we split the cost of a sitter, brewed a pot of coffee, and gathered together in prayer, discussion, and scripture reflection. Little did we know the profound impact this choice would have on our spiritual lives and on our friendship.
In our sharing of our lives and how we connected to the readings for the week, we were challenged to be vulnerable with one another and gentle in our reception of one another. Through being open about our journeys in therapy, infertility, pregnancy, motherhood, trauma, and loss, we received tenderness, compassion, accountability, and strength.
Make the time for reading the Lord’s Word with other women. Make the time for prayer. Make the time for community. Fill your cup with coffee and Love. Fiat. @twobecomefamily
