On the way home from rehearsal one night I stopped for a bite to eat. While waiting for my order to be completed, I couldn’t help but notice three young men standing in the parking lot near their vehicle talking. It was nothing out of the ordinary, but as I approached the window to receive my order, something remarkable happened. These three young men joined hands and began to pray.
It was one of the most beautiful moments I have ever witnessed. It is not often that I see people, especially men praying with each other in public. Once they finished praying, they spoke their well wishes and departed.
Fellowship and prayer are important steps in simplifying life. It gives us the opportunity to shift our burdens over to our Heavenly Father so that he can keep us in perfect peace. Of course there are other actions that go along with it, but it is a great part of the equation.
There are so many distractions and challenges in our everyday life that every opportunity to fellowship with Godly people and God should be ceased. The more we fellowship with God and seek to put into action what He reveals to us, the more our faith is increased.
It doesn’t mean that we won’t face trials and tribulations, but it does mean that we can still have joy in our hearts knowing that God is with us every step of the way. There is power in knowing that God “has your back” in all aspects of your life if you just open yourself to him.
Yes, it’s a beautiful thing!
