Relationship? waz dat?

Do you know what relationship really is? and do you have any?  Unfortunately, not too many really do, and the next generation even less, and the teens today are lacking it, and their behavior is showing it.

GOD wired us for relationship….

HE wired us to feel physical touch,

HE wired us to feel loved,

HE wired us to hear kind words, soft voices, friendly eyes looking back at us.

I love modern technology! Can’t wait to see what comes out next! But our culture today is very deceptive in the way it tears the relationship away.  NOT saying that good things are not happening as well. But how about the people physically close to us?

Teen on my bus…”my mom texts me too much, and i follow her on twitter, i run out of things to talk to her about”.   Me: ” so what do you do when you get home?”  teen: stay mostly in my room, homework, facebook, twitter…mostly bored”.  we have become a culture more and more of short messages, we don’t even spell correctly anymore, and we forget to touch, to laugh, to slow down, have conversation that does not include technology. Scary…the enemy will take something that is good and use it against us if we are not careful.

Relationships take time, the need to experience each other is necessary. Time spent together is necessary.  I know..We have it undercontrol.  or do we?  What are a children learning from us as we move through this technology era..how are they applying what they see?

I am no longer surprised that believers in Jesus Christ, do not believe in a personal relationship with HIM, we live in an age where relationship is disposable, and as easy as click to rid a person from your following.  I guess the enemy has done his homework, and praying that the body of Christ will do theirs..literally.

AGAIN..i am not knocking twitter, facebook, or any other technology…please don’t allow those things to be your only relationships, and God the Father, Son, Holy Spirit are not on these things..they are sitting beside you..waiting for relationship.

What in your own definition is relationship? How does one come into a deeper relationship with anyone?

DO SOMETHING-get out of the comfort zone

Been paying attention to what gets response on my Facebook. I have mixed group on my facebook. Christ followers, friends I grew up with, relatives, and co-workers, Christfollowers make up 70 % of my friends list.

This weekend  I finally grasped something that has been bothering me for a while.  As Christfollowers, we are quick to disregard things that are not comfortable, things that are not complementing to ourself, and overall would cause us to maybe do something.  Sorry in advance if this is stepping on your toes..well no apology is necessary.

So many children around the world need our help in one way or another.  I support a child in India through Compassion, for the last 6 years.  Love him!  There are many groups that can be helpful in directing you in how to help a child in need.  Christian Organizations.  But the one that has my heart, is Invisible Children of Uganda.  Its not Christian Organization, although Christians started it.  Its more of a Humanitarian effort.  Together we can make a difference in this country, and for these children.  I am asking you to come out of your comfort zone, and just watch any of the videos on their website.  Write a letter to your congressman, send out an email to entire list to raise awareness…DO SOMETHING..together we can help these children.

I hear so many people say “I am following Jesus”..I think Uganda and the Invisible Children are exactly where HE would be…Jesus loves the children of the world..and what we have done or not done for the least of these we have done to HIM… Please just hear these people out, and pray about how you can help them.

Fixing my Focus…

Facebook.  Twitter.  Blogs. Outreach. Church. Family. Life good and bad. Work. Friendships. None of which are bad things, but if not in the correct priority is demolition to my walk with Christ. So my struggles, and my lack of “livehappy” is my own doing.

Since my top priority is walking with the LORD, and being all that I can be in HIM, i needed to make some difficult decisions.

~my time with God comes first in the day or this laptop does not open til it happens.

~I am moving my writing to Philter48 because that is my call to write and to be a light that shines, and the accountability that goes with it. I am sure this is a good move.

~Being a part of a church family is God’s will for me…HE has placed me with a group of people who have a heart for the lost, and maybe for the first time I feel like I am home and with my vision “An Army of Love”.  Been struggling with this, but time to stop fighting it and move on with it.

~limiting my facebook time, and my twitter time, but not feeling like I need to stop it.

~family is important to me, and I am working on being more flexible with them, they are a gift from God.

~my friendships are important to me, and I want to be more open to spend more time with them.

~embracing the life God has given to me unselfishly, and living happy, being grateful, and keeping a Kingdom focus.

If you want to read more of ponderings, you will find them at Philter48. My outreach to search and rescue people who are bound by the enemy unknowingly.   You can follow me on Twitter and also on Facebook.

Love you all, and hope to see you and hear from you…Peace
