WOW. So many ways to connect with others “in person” while not actually being “in person.”
Virtual took on a whole new meaning when the pandemic hit. We were scrambling for ways to connect with those we like, love and work with to maintain relationships. Some office teams even had virtual happy hours where everyone brought their own drink of choice, logged on to the same Zoom meeting and shared, laughed and connected. Just to keep relationships going.
It’s amazing how this concept seems so new to us. But “a virtual meeting of connection” is the way Jesus has connected with us for over 2,000 years. We can sit in our own living rooms, with our own Bibles reading our own devotions of choice and feel the presence of Jesus in the same room.
We have access to Him through prayer 24/7. Every single day of the year. We can talk to Him, cry with Him and sit with Him any time we want; no access code needed. Just a simple prayer of confession and a friend request to have a relationship with Him.
I love the new technology and all that it offers for us. I love that we were able to find ways to connect during such a low time in our world. I love that we were able to tap into this thousand-year-old concept of spending time together virtually.
Thank you, Jesus for preparing the way ……. one virtual meeting at a time.
