Flipping my hood up over my hair, I made the short walk in the rain to the open rooms. I entered quietly, not making eye contact. All I wanted was to be alone in the presence of the Lord, even while amongst His people. I set my things down and found a far corner to sit. A woman was playing the keyboards. Her voice was so beautiful; I closed my eyes, becoming lost in the songs of love and hope.
Eventually we came together, sharing everything we had to give. Even in places of seeming emptiness, there were deep wells to draw from. Encouragement flowed from the throne room and I swam in its depths. I rarely cried in front of others, yet today I allowed the tears to fall, having no shame in what they exposed of my heart.
Heb 10:24-25 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
