exactly what I needed

March 5, 2007

Tonight I really didn’t want to go to potluck, I mean trying to make small talk and failing once again to feel like I am actually connecting to people in this town, no thanks.  But then I decided fine, I’ll give it another shot and so I went anyways and tonight turned out to be exactly what I needed.  Small group is so wonderful and so simple at the same time.  There were 5 of us there and so we each just shared about our week and then prayed for each other.  I didn’t share a whole lot, just that my family was in town for the weekend, and that I had been feeling a little low in energy recently.  And then one of the members of my small group prayed for me and said the words that I hadn’t said about needing to feel loved by God and needing to feel special.  It is an amazing thing to hear one’s needs articulated by another and it was the emotional equivalent of a warm hug.

So now I am feeling just a little bit more hopeful about this next week, maybe just maybe spring really will come and my life will get warmer!
