My victory came late last night, and today was full. Hence, day 30 at the end of day 31.
When we lived overseas, I met weekly with two dear friends of mine. Toward the end of my time there, we were joined by yet another friend. We would share with each other how we were doing and how they could pray for us, and then we would pray. We laughed. We cried. We wrestled with God for each other. Those were some of my most honest moments. Good stuff.
Since coming here, it’s been one of the things I’ve missed the most. The four of us currently live in four locations in three countries. Time zones are not our friend. Still, we have been trying to make a habit this fall, every other Wednesday, to google chat together. Last time we never successfully got all four of us on at the same time (we are not the most tech savvy bunch). Last night it looked like it might happen again.
But it didn’t. We muddled through decent connections and a dropped call or two, shared our requests, and finished by muting our mics and praying together. I have a note app on my phone in which I have recorded all the requests we’ve made over the last year. As we prayed, I scrolled through it, looking at past struggles and answered prayers, and I thought, “This is victory.”
“For where two or three gather in My name, there I am with them.” Matthew 18:20
What are you calling victory today?
