Hey guys welcome back to the Grace Room Podcast, I am so excited to introduce Kristen Schryver. A California girl who moved to Dallas to help equip women for discipleship through a women’s ministry called IF:Gathering. Today we are going to talk about COMMUNITY. How to press into the community God has for you, why that’s important, and how it is going to better foster your relationship with JESUS. Do you feel like your community is distant lately? That things aren’t quite back to normal? Well we are covering so much today so tune in with us!
“I think we definitely get to know more of who God is because of people He puts in our life.”
“Community is a huge blessing. It is hard, it’s not easy. My church always says that community is forged, not found, and I think that’s so true – you have to fight for it. It’s not just going to fall into your lap.”
“Creating Community gives us an opportunity to love people in the midst of the hard and the messy.”
“I forget the Lord is right there and He’s the one who wants to share in these joys with me and He wants to be our friend.”
“Sometimes we have to force ourselves to be still long enough and to maybe not make those plans and to prioritize that time with the Lord but it’s worth it.”
“Don’t be afraid to impose yourself on people and be your whole self with them and be authentic and real.”
“I think another way that we can see the Lord in other people is when He brings people into our lives that we would never have expected and maybe never would have chosen to be our friends”
