Fixing Broken Connections

Fixing those broken connections… 

Have you ever noticed the amount of stuff available that helps us to fix things? 

From the self-help meccas of Home Depot and Lowes to the auto parts stores, hardware stores, deep discount big box stores, and even grocery stores, there are kits, tools, parts, and supplies that allow us to fix just about everything. 

There are even YouTube videos available for non-mechanical folks like me that will show us how it’s done! 

What about the spiritual and relational connections in our lives that need repair? 

Sure, there are self-help books, counseling, and therapists to help, but just like all the stuff in our homes we can fix, it requires willingness, effort, and honest hard work on our part. 

The good news is that when Jesus sees our efforts and willingness, HE uses the Holy Spirit living within each of us to guide us on the repair of the relationship with Him as well as others in our lives… 

Check your experience… 

“The central fact of our lives today is the absolute certainty that our Creator has entered into our hearts and lives in a way which is indeed miraculous.” Big Book pg. 25 

Lord let us open our hearts to let the Holy Spirit guide us in repairing and maintaining all of our relationships according to Your will and not ours, AMEN. 

“Jesus replied, You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22: 37-38 

Have a blessed day Y’all! 

Join me in looking at the things we face daily with passages from both the Big Book and Bible!
