I meet with some of my very best girlfriends most weeks of the year. We meet virtually and when possible in person. I love them and look so forward to being with them.
We take our time very seriously. We only have an hour (sometimes we go all little longer) and since our time is short, we move to the important stuff quickly. Now, don't get me wrong, we laugh, we laugh a lot. And! They are some of the first people I call when anything important happens.
We ask each other these questions each week:
When were you closest to Christ?
When was your faith tested through failure?
How is your prayer, study, and action going?
We laugh because we can always name when we failed, and we have to think harder about where we found Christ in our everyday lives. But, because I know I will be meeting with them, I pay more attention. I notice the places Jesus shows up and it brings me to the present and I get to share the blessing I received.
We even help each other find the Jesus in the things we share. It is a true delight and so holy when we come together.
I hope and pray that you have people in your life that you can have holy conversations with that brings you closer to one another and God.
