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?

Following Jesus…

“No, I am not talking about twitter. I literally want you to follow me.”

Found on FB, and has made me laugh, and make me think! Wow, how many times do we think we can follow Jesus like we follow someone on twitter? Twitter is for our social convenience .  Jesus never said he would be convenient….Just Follow Me..literally

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

things to ponder…

* Oh..how HE loves us so..oh how HE loves us..(this song is stuck in my head today)

* walking through the valley is the time when we earn crowns to place at HIS feet..(different perspective)

* all things work together for those who love HIM

* unlimited “do-overs”,  what is not to love about that?

* jump..HE will catch you

* sometimes we need to travel the hardest road, to get to the best place

* no place is dark enough for God not to shine through..amazing

* when everything else fails…HE never does

*God is working through the internet, on Twitter, in Blogsville-i know i seen HIM

* even in the remotest corner of the world, we are never alone-HE is there with us

* HE gave us promises, and HE does not lie

*HE doesn’t love just a little..HE loves completely, and unconditionally

 

these are some of the things i am pondering through maybe you need some things to ponder on too…these things always cause me look up, move closer, and feel the healing power of our awesome God..love and peace!

Do you Twitter?

If you do Twitter, when asked why? How do you answer that?  I have some trouble at times coming up with an answer, in the time frame that is allowed (while passing) to explain, so generally I don’t.

I came a cross a post while twittering that is exceptional (in my opinion) as to why a Christ Follower would twitter.  Go here and read this Twitter a simple explanation.

I am encouraged daily on Twitter.  I can choose who I follow, and who follows me.  I also get the chance to live life in real time with other followers, who are just doing life, no masks, just people.  I love that! It also helps me to stay close to people I love who are far from me. Its really up to you how much time you spend there, so if you spend your entire day there, don’t blame Twitter!   😉

Love to hear your thoughts!…pro or con..
