connection…

Are you connected?

What do I mean? Connected to what you might wonder. And I don’t mean is your phone charged. I mean connected to people. And I don’t just mean how many Facebook friends or Instagram followers do you have. I mean truly connected.

Would you agree that in todays world this is something the majority of people struggle with? I may be wrong but my hunch is I am not.

We live in such a fast paced and instant society today that the skill of truly connecting with others has become sort of dim.

I will be the first to say, I love to text and email, and use messenger and any other quick easy way of communication that is available these days. It is a wonderful addition to our talent of multi-tasking or so we think.

But have you ever stopped to ask yourself what you might be missing when these are our primary if not sole forms of connecting with each other?

I do believe it is worth giving some thought and prayer. Ask God who He wants you to connect with and how. I can promise you and this is from my own personal experience, that He has specific people He wants you to connect with. And it may only be something as simple as a card, or a phone call, or maybe if time allows grabbing a quick cup of coffee. Maybe there is that family you have been meaning to take a meal to but haven’t because you think if it isn’t all 3 courses and homemade then it is not acceptable.

WRONG THINKING!

Taking a meal is a wonderful thing to do, but it can be a simple as picking up soup and salad from the deli. The connection is not the food but the love you are sharing. Don’t put this off until you think you have the perfect scenario or the perfect time, because there is no such thing. Just do it!

And the blessings are tremendous for both the giver and the receiver. And God even tells us this in His Word.

PROVERBS 27:9 Sweet friendships refresh the soul and awaken our hearts with joy, for good friends are like the anointing oil that yields the fragrant incense of God’s presence.

you are blessed to be a blessing!

  1. Living in Atlanta, still in the work force, and single = difficult to have close, sister relationships. Atlanta = traffic. By the time I get home from work, make dinner, then clean up – it is time to make lunch for tomorrow and off to bed. Sometimes the only time I get to see my girlfriends is when they need their hair done – after I get home from my full time job. Mind you, I love those evenings.
    Still in the work force = up at 4:30AM – yes AM; home by 4:30ish (that ATL traffic thing again), it doesn’t leave opportunity to meet during the day.
    Then there is the ‘single’ thing. My family lives far away – my choice to live here; it sounded like a good idea at the time. And it still is. I have a fabulous job, fabulous church and friends and ATL family. The weekends are taken up mostly with “house” stuff. You know, groceries, laundry, house cleaning, yard work – ok I’m tired now.. whew.
    It takes more time and effort these days for true relationship. It is worth it. I am so blessed to have the wonderful people in my life that I do. Thank you Lord. I am a face to face girl. I love seeing all my friends. So, I take advantage of any time that I can to be with you. Technology is good, but your face is better. πŸ™‚ So, when can I schedule your next hair cut? πŸ˜‰

  2. So true Kim, I think there are so many people that feel the exact same way. It is easy for us to think others are connected when they are not. We all need each other! You are a blessing my sweet friend.
