This design based on 1 John 1:7 came to mind this morning as I walked around at a local farmers market, selecting luscious veggies and enjoying the cool crisp air and warm sunshine. My sister accompanied me and it was so good to spend some time together, catching up. With her new grandchildren to dote on and my new job, we haven’t been able to connect as much as we’d like and I’ve really missed our ‘sister time’.
God made us for fellowship – with him and with others. When we fellowship with other believers and nurture those relationships, we also experience fellowship with God, walking in the light of His love. When circumstances result in our being isolated from one another, we develop a yearning that can only be resolved through such fellowship. As the scriptures tell us, we are ‘wonderfully made’, complete with pre-programmed yearnings that nudge us to seek that which really matters. Thank you, God, for yearnings, nudges and luscious veggies!
