We look forward to what God will do through our rest. A few things we encourage you to do in rest:
- Continue to put God first in all things
- Find small (Biblical) groups in your community to connect with
- Go to therapy
- Stay connected to a local church community
- Continually check in with your accountability partner
- Use your gift to bless others
- Be okay with being still
RESTING IN PURPOSE
By Victoria Rosa-Garcia, Founder of PLH
It's been six years since this journey began. Our church started rolling out the small group model, a framework that enables a large church congregation to provide relational intimacy with other church members by splitting us into focus groups categorized by theme/interests/topics/location.
I never wanted to be a small group leader. I entered Cornerstone Christian Center in Milford, CT in the Fall of 2013. I was looking for a nice big church where I could hide in the back and not be noticed. That strategy worked for a good while.
Isn't it funny how we like to hide when we are hurt?
So I hid. I hid my past accomplishments and gifts, and kept things very surface-level, until of course, I joined a small group. My first small group was led by sister Judy. She lived only a few blocks from me. Our first roll-out of small groups was done by location, so we were split up into a group closest to our homes. It was perfect and exactly what I needed. That group allowed me to be transparent and they loved me back to life. I also attended a pre-marital class with my husband, a 6-week study led by Pastor Alfred Watts, and that group course allowed me to shed even more layers of hurt.
