Have you ever been tired of waiting for someone to step up to the plate and do something? I’ve been feeling like that lately. I’ve been wanting to get to the meatier things of life for sometime now. (Those close to me know of my struggle.) I must say, that is definitely a hard thing to do on your own. Perhaps impossible. But to find a community where you can be completely vulnerable and bear each other’s burdens is much more difficult than it should be.
I’ve been thinking a lot about starting a small group for a few other women near my age. I’ve already started the conversation, and much prayer has gone before that. I feel I have been given the perfect opportunity to just go for it. Granted, I don’t consider myself to be a “leader” (I doubt there are many of us that do). I do know that I am willing to let God do as He will – and yes, what a scary proposition that can seem to be.
I do know I am tired of waiting for “someone else” to do it. God has given me everything I need to do this, including the desire for it. I must not be silent. Who knows what God will do through this? We will only know if we venture out to the places where we have not gone before.
