I have been lucky to find a church full of wonderful people that welcomed me right from the start. I find that I am only close to a few people though. This is no fault of theirs, but rather I tend to be shy and keep myself to the sidelines.
At first glance they appear to be people that have it all together. I have been amazed and blessed by their ability to share their faults and struggles before the congregation. Instead of trying to pretend that everything is perfect, they share their burdens with their brothers and sisters in Christ.
It is a wonderful thing that happens when people are honest and share their problems with one another. When they stumble, they have a family who is ready to hold them up and help them back to the proper path. They have people who will instantly draw alongside them and lift them up in prayer.
I wonder though, if they realize what a blessing they are to others when they are able to be vulnerable with one another. They show me (you know me, the one hiding on the sidelines looking in) that it is ok to not be perfect. And without knowing it, they are showing me what it means to be brothers and sisters in God's amazing family :)
