Refuge

As some of you may know, I go to Refuge every Monday night. Before we broke into smaller groups, a woman shared her beautiful story of pain and redemption. I've interacted with this woman for awhile and I never had an idea of what she has been through and what God has done in her life.

It got me thinking: how often do I delve deeper with others? How often do I give someone enough space to really fill me in? How often do I pursue someone else?

It was amazing to hear her transformation and all of the raw emotion behind what God has done in her life. I want to know her better and feel slightly sad that I haven't already pursued a relationship with her.

We often are consumed by our own needs and forget to look at others. This is a good reminder!
