Weekend Whispers

The Weekend Brew: Strength In Numbers

“For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
(Matthew 18:20)

There is strength in numbers.  We were not meant to walk this journey alone. I am so thankful to God that He has put in my path people that encourage me when I feel weak and continually draw me closer to Jesus.

Friends, I am thankful for YOU!  You take time out of your busy day to stop by this space and encourage my heart through your comments.  When we gather ourselves together in community, truly God’s Spirit does reside.  We need each other.  I never realized when I began my blogging journey nearly five years ago how much life could come through an on line community.

Today, I am grateful for each one of you!

Are you blessed to have an online community which strengthens, supports, encourages and breathes life into your spirit?  Will you share in the comments below your experience?

Now it’s your turn to share encouragement here at The Weekend Brew.
1.  Write a post, or share one from earlier in the week, that encourages and brings life.

    Oh sweet sister… our mutual love for things brewed, for the Lover of our souls, for community and truth and connection… how could we not become friends! I am oh so thankful for Community… often for me, ‘online’ Community is stronger and more ‘real’ than in real life! I am blessed to have both and honored to be a part in what God is building!

    I enjoy blogging and love the wonderful women I’ve met through it. An online community I love and am deeply involved with is Ravelry, a social network for knitters, crocheters and spinners. A group I am a part of on Rav is a group of strong, committed Christians who not also share our love of fiber but our prayer requests praises and everything else under the sun. A dozen of us actually met up this summer and spent five wonderful days together.

    1. Barbie says:

      Sounds like you have a beautiful community of women surrounding you Elizabeth. How wonderful! Have a blessed week.
