The world’s trying to redefine what a friend is; the word is getting watered down so much we’re having a hard time knowing who our friends are. Isolation is the goal under the guise of connectedness. Let’s not be fooled. Thank you friends.

We each so desire to be connected, I came across this statement from Bob Lefsetz (thank you Darren) and it really tells how the world around us feels.

“It’s dark inside my mind. Do you get that feeling? That there’s a plethora of stimuli surrounding you but there’s a force field between you and the rest of the universe? That you’re locked inside your head and you can’t break out? That no one understands you and you’re dying to make a connection but it’s impossible? I feel that way all the time. My whole life is about trying to eradicate this feeling, I’m trying to make a connection.”

We can be the solution if we will.

I love how God reveals Himself, supports and confirms what He’s saying when we’ll listen. After sharing on fear and trust yesterday, I came across this from Larry Crabb –

“The point of the whole plan is relationship, a connected community.

We can make a little headway in building that community now. If I have already been forgiven and therefore connected to a God whose Spirit pours life into me, then you pose no threat to my existence. You can reject me, hurt me and make my life pretty miserable, but you cannot destroy me. Therefore I don’t need to be afraid of you that my fear controls how I treat you.”
