feed your spirit
Soul hungry? Feed it here.
Ponder: When was the last time that you had a five or ten year plan? How did you feel when life never followed your plan?
Pray: God, we know the old adage – tell you our plans and you will laugh. But we aren’t laughing when our lives haven’t turned out like we hoped. In fact, we’re disappointed. We cry when we don’t have a family, career or house like we thought we would a few years back. Now we ask you to help us embrace grace for the accomplishments that haven’t happened and incorporate new dreams into our present and future. Amen.

I have been attending a new church. I love the worship, and the people are nice enough, but I am having a hard time getting past the surface and finding real friends. As an introvert, coffee hour terrifies me. When I do manage to go, I only make it about 10 feet into the parish hall, and give it about five wrenching minutes before I flee. It pains me to see all those people laughing and having fun, and having to feel on the outside of things.
