I was made to be a stay-at-home-mom. Since our baby girl was born I have gone days without leaving the house, or even going outside. Yes, you read that correctly. Days. And you know what? It hasn’t really even bothered me.
I love being in my house, just me and my baby. Rocking. And feeding. And reading. And rocking.
From the outside it might look like I have the patience of Job – to be able to sit in that rocker in her room for as long as she needs me to. But really it has less to do with patience and more to do with just the way I’m made.
Or maybe half-way made.
I like to blame not calling my friends or making a coffee date or reaching out on my introversion – the way God made me. But I was reminded just tonight as I read chapter two of Desperate by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson that I am only half-way made an introvert. The other half is in desperate need for community.
We are all made for community. God exemplifies this through Himself, His Son, and His Spirit.
So, yes, I love those quiet moments in my house. Rocking my baby. For hours. That’s where my introverted heart is nourished.
But out in community is where my heart grows.
You, too, need community. And sometimes it comes to you within those walls where you live. This is what (in)courage is for. This is what they do. They create community. For you and for me.
Today is Launch Day for Session Two of (in)Couragers – community groups for people like me and maybe like you. People who know they need community, but sometimes it’s easier to just stay inside and keep rocking.
Session Two begins today, Feburary 12th, and will continue through April 28th. There’s one waiting just for you. Take a peek below and find your community.
