It’s 5-minute Frday again and today’s subject: Connect.
How do I connect the dots of my life to make sense of it and come out with a reasonable picture? And what would the picture be? A cloud, a river, a mountain, a forest, an ocean, a flower, a veg? Me? Whatever the picture, at this point only God knows the whole of it. His plan for me is to connect, and each “dot” along the way brings that picture closer to completion.
The way He has given me to connect is the written word. Although tone and inflection may be lost at times; I think the true meaning comes through. In this way, I connect with others. They connect with me, and friendships are made.
When I no longer connect with another, the mark of that connection is left on my heart. There are quite a few deep scars there if you look closely, but there are quite a few gardens of ongoing friendship as well. I tend them as best I can with the words He has given me and fertilize them with His Word to help them grow.
I like to think of myself as a connector; a bridge between Him and them. As they connect their own dots, I have become a “dot” in their picture.
As iron sharpens iron; so one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
