I never enjoyed team sports or even understood them. No desire to watch or learn so I find it funny when I am tweeting with Jen into the weird hours of the day and night about baseball, a sport I never played, watched or understand. Yet her passion and love for the game, for the TEAM, the players even if they are on the WRONG team, makes me want to cheer her on, cheer with her, send her crazy “outs” that look insane to anyone who doesn’t click to see the conversation and it’s totally fun.

I am the girl on the yoga mat seeing how bendy I can be. Reading with my leg up the wall while the other one is folded at my side for several chapters before I realize I should probably switch. I love being alone. I need it. It’s my soul time. My time to pray, meditate, sweat it out, think, detox the day away.

I love the idea of being a part of something, but I want to lurk in the shadows and not be on center stage. I experience community in far different ways, and that’s more than okay. Matthew 6:6 tells us “When you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”

I’m not trying to get bonus points or be better than the person who is leading a huge group. I simply like to keep things small, I like to share with the page and I enjoy that the page shares back. Maybe I won’t ever be on a TEAM that carries a roster or has a starting line, but I know that I am on God’s TEAM and He is on mine!

  4. Marisa, I’m so in agreement with you on this. And, yet you captain a team – your family and I know how important it is that the three of you work together!!! Love you girl.

  5. I’m a mix of both. I find energy and fun in leading groups and being front and center but I find quiet and alone so refreshing. Thank you for sharing!

  6. There’s something quite lovely about aloneness (says one introvert to another ;)). I agree that being part of God’s team keeps my team membershiph from ever feeling lonely!

  7. Each member of the team has a unique purpose yet we are all still part of the same team. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I agree that abiding in God is our most important move as a team player. Enjoyed your post. Visiting from FMF.
