A few months ago I made the big decision of switching churches. It was a quiet move; I didn’t tell the whole world just the people closest to me. I didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. There wasn’t a big fall out or anything at all, I just felt like the Lord was calling me to another church and I followed that calling.
So here I was in this new place only knowing a few people. I had been going to the same church my whole life and practically knew everyone there. But now everything changed and I didn’t know really anyone! I knew I had to get involved so I joined the 20’s ministry there. After a few weeks, they were going to split into smallgroups for the next few months. I was terrified to be honest. I had to pick a group based on what night I was free and Thursday nights were the only one that worked. Problem was my friends were all in a Sunday night group. As I was driving the first night, I almost turned around and didn’t go. Meeting new people isn’t something that comes easy for this shy girl and meeting 10 new people at once freaked me out!( I know I am weird)
But as He always does God showed up and rocked my socks off.
The second I met my group I fell in love. They were all SO nice and at the end of thr first night I knew this was going to be good.
Fast forward a few months and I cannot imagine NOT having my smallgroup in my life. They have become some of my best friends and I am ridiculously thankful for them. I now have a community of sisters who love and accept me. We are able to pray together, get in the Word together and encourage each other to live this crazy life out for Jesus. I could cry because God is so good and so faithful. Just looking back on that first night when I was so nervous about these new people to now having Thursday nights being my favorite night because I get to see them. I am so glad I kept pushing through and got involved. I am no longer just a face at this new church and I am so excited for my future there. And if you are one of my group girls reading this, seriously thank you. I love you all and you have no idea what you mean to me!
Here are a few pictures from the other night. Aren’t we cute and matchy haha
