Last Saturday sort of proved it to me. Over 180 people gathered together to do a Walk4Water event. If you’d like to know more, you can read about it here. It was spearheaded by Christ followers who just wanted to help some people in need.

But, one image sticks with me.
When you’re walking with Christ followers, you’ll never walk alone.
It may seem like you walk alone. It may be your experience for some time, but they are out there. They’re pulling for you. They’re right beside you.
