I’m an introvert, always have been and always will be. That’s just my nature. That’s why writing is such a joy for me. A means to have my voice used without the risk of all that comes with speaking in a crowd. So as an introvert, I “DO NOT LIKE CROWDS” or at least the kind that require me to be a part.
Over the last several years of being forced into crowded places, full of people I don’t know. With a move, new job, new church, new community, I have had to lean more of Christ for my strength, my courage, my justifying and my protection, so the introvert is beginning to break out of her shell a bit.
Yet, crowds still overcome me at times.
Then I think of the other types of crowds, those that no one notices, no one cares. Those that no one sees you at all. As in the woman who had a bleeding problem and was and outcast in her crowd. She, also found that healing from Him. “If I could just touch him!” “If I could just touch him!”
Mark 5:34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”

Oh how the healing could be if everyone in the crowd could have that faith to say, “If I could just touch him!”
Oh how the healing came to me when I said it!
Then there is the crowd that will be in the heavens.

I’m not a big fan of crowds either, but yes, that crowd in heaven will be amazing! And I love the story of the woman touching Jesus’ robe and how he took time for an individual in the midst of the crowd. Visiting from FMF #5.
What a joyous time it will be. Thanks for reading and encouraging me to keep going.
There are many types of crowds. You describe them well. The final crowd will be the most glorious crowd we encounter. How we look forward to that crowd and actually by keeping our eyes on Jesus the leader of the crowd, we can be effective in the crowds on earth.
Yes, you are right! How we look forward to that crowd and by keeping our eyes on Jesus the leader of the crowd, we can be effective in the crowds on earth. Thanks for your words and encouragement!
I’m right there with you, my friend. As an introvert, I don’t seek out crowds, although my job has required me to be in them on many occasions. What a great picture you paint of the crowd that is to come! That’s a crowd that I can look forward to as well. Blessings to you!
So looking forward to sharing it with you! My new friend!

We’ve been FMF neighbors a couple of times recently. I wove the same story into my FMF post on CROWD. xo
So thankful that I have great neighbors that will encourage me to keep writing. One day, yes one day, I will have time to encourage others as you do me.
“How the healing came to me when I said it…” I love this line!! God has wonderful/miraculous things for each of us…as His children!!
Blessed beyond! Thank you for taking your time to encourage me.
Great job, Rhonda, and you worked in the story of the bleeding woman beautifully.
And I don’t care for crowds; never did.
Thanks for the encouragement!
