"Together is a Must" - 02/04/15 - Exodus 16-18

"And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went to the top of the hill.  It turned out that whenever Moses raised his hands, Israel was winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, Amalek was winning.  But Moses' hands got tired. So they got a stone and set it under him. He sat on it and Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on each side. So his hands remained steady until the sun went down."  (17:1012)

"This is way too much for you - you can't do this alone."(18:18)    

I came away from His Word today affirmed once more - we can not do life all alone.

Last night my best friend, my "sister" in Him, was unexpectedly standing on my doorstep.  I love having relationship with others who know they are always welcome into my life at any time.  any moment.  It was a time of just connecting.  laughing.  venting.  sharing.  and talking about our ABBA.  I will carry in my treasures, seeing her inside out beauty under the soft glow of the lamp. 

There are so many in my life who cover me with prayer.  with encouragement.  with accountability.  with love.  There are so many in my life who I see Christ shining through and am honored, blessed they have chosen to share life with me. 

I love the strangers He puts into my life, even for just a moment, and reveals to us - we are siblings through our Christ. 

There are many moments when I am blown away when He opens my eyes to the love pouring out from Him through those who let me know - I am not alone. 

We need each other - to share life and all that comes with it.  Our ABBA designed us to need, interact with each other, but most of all -  we were made with the need of Him.
