31 March 2021 Cast Your Cares 2

Hello to you, how are you today? It’s afternoon as I write to you and I hope you have had a good day. The title today is because I was feeling anxious this morning before I got up and I heard that message again! It is such a relieving phrase to hear! Here is one I read this afternoon:

“The Lod is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you” 2 Thessalonians 3:3 NIV

The cares I needed to cast to God involved driving to my doctors office to pick up a lab slip for blood work to be done. I had only ever been to my doctors office when my Aunt was driving so I was nervous about getting lost on my own. Sometimes my GPS doesn’t work so well! Thankfully everything went well and I got there just fine. I think if I had chosen to go later in the day there might have been a problem. The route took me through some pretty busy areas of town!

I guess you could say I am having to learn to drive again or at least that’s what it feels like. My husband did so much of the driving when we were together. Now I have to do it I for myself. Some say it’s part of having independence to be able to drive but I there is a part of me that would love to have someone drive me again lol! I would love to have a driverless car some day.

1 March 2021 Where Two or Three are Gathered….

Hello to you. How are you doing today? I am doing pretty good. My Aunt and I went over to a new friends house today to learn how to crochet. This woman lives alone with her little dog named Grace and like me welcomes having someone besides her own company to visit with. This came to mind thinking about our gathering together:

Matthew 18:20 – For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Something else I figured out about this type of gathering what I call a power pyramid. There is just something powerful about having a triangle formation. May be it is because God is “in there.” I hadn’t been crocheting for quite some time but sitting in that power pyramid I felt I could! It just felt good!

I feel like we are social beings and called to community with each other. God wants to be “in there” right in the middle! I am trying to figure out how I fit into the community I find myself in now. One of the things that holds me back the most from truly immersing myself is driving. For most gatherings you have to drive somewhere to participate. I am going to have to pray about this obstacle and see what paths God opens up for me.
