Take a Chance

Recently, I was invited to join a group of ladies at an English teahouse. Everything about it was a new experience. Besides not knowing what to wear, I would only know one other person! I could have easily bowed (or curtseyed) out but decided to take a chance and try the adventure.

You may have similar thoughts when someone invites you to church or church event. Our imaginations run wild and we can become anxious or we can ask questions and do a little research. If someone invites you, ask what people wear, the length of the service, what happens during the service, the tone of the atmosphere, etc. Nowadays, it helps that many services can be viewed online for a sneak peek.

There are lots of great churches that preach the Word of God, have excellent music, and work hard to make all feel welcome. If a sincere friend makes the invitation, it is doubtful they will steer you wrong. Take the chance especially if you are not regularly attending church. Scripture says, “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing” (Hebrews 10:25a).

New experiences can be intimidating, especially if you don’t know what to expect. But if it sounds like an encouraging, uplifting experience, why not give it a try? A little FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) could do us a little good and may actually be a first step to an amazing transformed life.

As for the tea, I enjoyed lovely conversation, made connections with new friends, ate lots of yummy treats, and tasted clotted cream. I would definitely have missed out if I had not taken a chance.

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
