#FiveMinuteFriday: Connect


I don’t always want to connect. I mean I do, but sometimes I don’t want to put in the effort it takes to connect. Sometimes, I want to be a lazy friend, a lazy wife, a lazy mom, a lazy church lady.

Connections. Take. Effort.

With my family, friends, God, bloggers, social media. ect….it’s takes time to connect. However big or small the connection may be still requires some sort of effort.

But that’s not how God has called me to live. He hasn’t called me to not put in any effort.  God’s people are worth it.  God’s church is worth it.  My friends are worth it.  I am worth it.

Connections are what build relationships. Connections are what make people realize we aren’t alone.

Connections are what remind us God is extremely relational. Tweet That

When we fail to connect…we disconnect.

That is a dangerous place to be.  That leads to isolation and idle thinking with yourself.  You know, that whole devil’s playground mess.  I don’t know about you, but my mind can go to crazy places!

I need connections with God, family, friends, and social media (Yes, social media…I’m a huge fan) to remind me the world is bigger than me.

Take the time and put in the effort to connect this weekend! Actually get up and go to church, call a friend, have dinner with a family member.  You and the people around you are worth it!

Hebrews 10:25-Not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encourage one another!

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for Jesus and allowing us a way to always connect with you! You are everything.

In Jesus name,

  1. Awesome word, LaLa!
    I’m so thankful how God brings us to him through loving, supportive fun friends ! I’m part of a group of 10 Life-long friends who pray together on group text daily.

  2. Lauren, loved you post! I hadn’t thought about to not connect is to disconnect. It’s true, isn’t it? Yep, I need to be intentional to connect with others, even when I don’t feel like it, or it seems scary. Connecting is crucial to us as humans. 🙂

    Thanks so much for stopping by my place. It is so nice to meet you. 🙂

  3. Lauren, Thanks for sharing the angle of disconnecting. God has made us image bearers to each other and when we disconnect we are prone to the “devil’s playground.” I love the Hebrews verse. When we connect, we experience so much more of God’s character. I am #3 at FMF (and thanks for following me:))
