God's love connects us.


To the web. To people. It reminds me of that cartoon with the guy hugging his computer and saying, "My friends are in there..." or something like that.

I feel that way in the blogosphere most days. Especially when I follow God's lead to another chosen helper's words. I love stories of mess and imperfection. I feel like they are telling an altered version of my story. Altered in their personal way, yet connected to mine.

He keeps us connected. If we are the hands and feet, that that's to be expected, right?

My body likes to connect with others as they tell me about their pain. I can feel it... and it hurts, making me want to stop them mid sentence and hug them or shake their hand. I want to ask them how they are here standing in front of me to tell.

Then, I think of how I made it there to listen and reciprocate sharing. He brought me here... and you. If this was an accident, then why is He here too... because "where 2 or more are gathered in Mine Name, there I am also." I'm glad were here under this wing of protection, learning things of more value than tangible treasure.

I'm so thankful He connects me to His love. It makes me consider walking in the shoes of those less desirable. It helps me understand the hurts and bitterness they carry, and my smile's caliber of importance... because its not mine but His smile... and His love... and His connectedness.

Linking with Gypsy Mama for 5 Minute Friday.


  1. I love that cartoon! It is so true in that I have so many precious internet friends.

  2. Amen to what Shanda said - great cartoon and great point about this strange and wonderful connectedness we share in cyberspace.

  3. I just want to say Amnen to your post!

  4. HI Kendra - that is exactly what I was thinking when I read that word, connected! I so want to hug my computer now because its full of God-sent friends.
    God bless

  5. He did bring us together, thank goodness. That cartoon speaks to me. Online friends are always available, and thanks to the internet I can better connect with my real life friends too. I know there are people who claim to have brought us the internet and all it's connections. But, really it was God, connecting all of us, helping us realize the world is not really that big. Quilted blessings, Nita

  6. It is good to stay connected to God, people etc...
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment, I appreciate it very much.
    God bless,

  7. Hi Kendra ~ This is so true and exactly what I needed to read this morning. No matter how we feel, we are never alone. Not only do we have the Lord but we also have all of our friends...and sometimes the ones in the blogosphere are the ones that keep us going for one more day! We are connected through HIM! Thank you so much for sharing this!!
