In RL Life
We were there in real time to encourage one another. Some were strangers, others knew each other only in the halls of their local church, and others were just people on the computer screen. We were together in fellowship and community and it worked.
God was with us.
Seven - the perfect number. In my home seven of us were sitting around my living room to experience the power of community.
One kept questioning herself, "Why was I invited to this? Why am I here?" As she watched the video she heard these words: "You must tell your story." and then she knew, just knew, why she was there.
You see, she remembered what she almost forgot - a message given to her in the past. This pastor's wife came up to her years ago and said, "You need to start writing. People need to hear your story." This pastor's wife was a stranger to her and didn't even know her story!
God, right there in my living room, at the (In) RL conference, reminded her of His good plans for her. He reminded her that He had etched His story into hers and now the world needs to hear that story.
God was at work.
She knows just what to do now.
Pen, paper and a yielded heart - priceless.
Those gathered together (In) RL time around the world for community - it works, it just works.
