Resting in Fellowship

Some days just feel like we've been swamped, snowed in, or overwhelmed by things outside of our control. Definitely, it can affect our writing and our sense of inner peace.

Then in comes the calvary to help plow you out and make a way for you to keep going forward.

Sometimes the most important thing we can do, when our hearts are buried under a ton of snow, is call in the snow plows. Friends that listen and help us find our way back. People that meet us where we are and lead us to where we need to be.

It might still be cloudy out...but you start to see the beauty in them and the beauty of the road before you.

That's what resting in fellowship is and why we need to connect with other friends who understand.

Just sharing a deep heartfelt need, stress, or pain helps us to find a little bit of hope. Hope that can help us get a little further down off the frozen mountain of aloneness.

Are you deluged?

Call in the snow plows to start digging out.

PS Come visit me often over at God Uses Broken Vessels.

So very true, Angie -- and your pictures show why I would never make it in the beautiful cold world you live in. I'm sure there's a reason God meant for me to live in Georgia instead!
