There is a saying that says, "Birds of a feather flock together." One of my former supervisors once discussed this idea when presenting to a group. She believed that we needed to look at our "flock" and include others that were different from ourselves, to diversify those with whom we associate. There may be value in associating with different people, but we need to remember to not lose sight of who we are and our association with God!
God is always with us. He is willing to associate with us, to be by our side, but He also expects us to associate with and acknowledge His presence in our lives. If we are seeking God, He will reveal Himself to us. If we are following God's guidance, He will travel with us. However, we cannot turn our back on God and expect to find Him. As we choose to add members to our "flock," we need to be sure our main focus is keeping our lives centered on God so we can always say that we are with Him!
Keep your focus on God and continue seeking Him so you are always with Him!
Thank You for guiding me and being with me through all things. Help me to continually seek You so I can always be with You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
