Spiritual Outlook: The community of they

More by this author

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses …” Hebrews 12:1

“We are each other’s harvest; We are each other’s business; We are each other’s magnitude and bond.” – Gwendolyn Brooks

Recently I was reminded about the importance of the cloud of witnesses and community that surrounds us.

Each of us have a Community of they …

Do you know your they?

The they that prayed for you

The they that paved the way for you

The they that opened doors for you

The they that kick doors down for you

The they who offered more for you

The they who don’t give you a choice

When they say you need to connect with them

So they can see your face and hear your voice

The they who listen to words spoken and unspoken

The they who you can trust with bonds unbroken

The they who will allow you to be comfortable and provide a safe space to do so

The they who will encourage you to be uncomfortable and provide a brave space for you to be so

The they who will know all about you and love you still

The they who will allow you to be vulnerable and open

The they who are placed in your journey for a lifetime or a season

The they who cheer for you up close and from afar

The they who love you, not for what you have, but for who you are

I am grateful each and every day

For how I am sustained by community of they

The community of they that surrounds me

The community of they that is all around me

The community of they who cheers us on

The community of they that is here and beyond

No person is an island,

We were not designed to navigate this life journey alone

We are sustained by the community of they,

so we don’t have to be on our own.

Grateful each day for the community of they

Grateful for the grace shown in every way for the community of they

They cover me

They protect me

They connect me

They surround me

They sustain me

Remember your they,
