I (eye) can be introverted and extroverted
Compassionate or unfeeling
Influential and yet powerless
Self-centered yet thinking of others more than myself, realizing it’s not about me
I can be very approachable or very reserved
I can appreciate a crowd, yet cherish being with myself
I can be all things to all people (once describe as a chameleon)
Yet I can be happily “just me”
My diversity seems to be my undoing
My inconsistencies seem to work against me rather than for me
It’s difficult to find and maintain meaningful relationships
Sometimes – I (eye) find myself …….
Thankfully – G.I.M.R.A.
God Is My Refuge…Always
Hebrews 10:25 instructs believers in the importance of gathering or assembling together with other believers. One of the reasons for doing so is to create an atmosphere of encouragement. But, there may be more than one way to gather together with the saints.
Most common, is the traditional definition used by most that assembly means to physically come to the church house. An alternative idea is being in the presence of others through Christian devotionals, Christian focused self-help books, and fellowship with favorite pastors via television, e-mail and social media. This type of meeting is effective because it promotes inner reflection and often the voice of God is clearly heard and does not need to compete with other distractions.
Assembly:To Gather Together With Others
Certainly, no one is advocating eliminating traditional fellowship, but if the goal is encouragement, then it’s beneficial to come by it as you see fit. So, if you are gathering together with other saints by reading, meditating, learning or listening by all means continue…even if they can’t hear you when you say “Amen.”
It is well.
