Embracing Connection

To God, yourself & others

“Just to know You and to make You known
We lift Your name on high
Shine like the sun, make darkness run and hide
We know we were made for so much more
than ordinary lives
It’s time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive”
Casting Crowns. Thrive. Beach Street/Reunion, 2013

Why Connection

We all long for purpose & connection but we live our lives at such a fast pace that we begin to lose touch with those things that bring us the most joy.  The expectations of our culture and those around us, the everyday striving, and life issues overshadow our true calling.  We are left feeling exhausted, feeling frustrated with life & feeling unfulfilled.  Our connections have become shallow and we can become lost in a sea of comparison & loneliness.

But we were created for something different.  We were created to thrive, to live an abundant life full of joy & purpose.  I propose that to truly thrive we must get connected.

Connected to the right things.  To God, to our authentic self and to the people around us.
