I serve with the greatest ministry leaders at my church. Each one is passionately sold out to how they serve in each area. Last month at our leadership meeting our theme was Alone, But Together.
Do you know the feeling?
You serve in a ministry with others, but yet when you show up to serve you feel alone.
You walk in to a room full of other people (most you know), but yet you feel lonely.
You sit down in the evening with your family, but yet you feel disconnected.
Feeling detached is a lonely feeling. Maybe you are doing all the right things in your life — working wholeheartedly, serving diligently, running kids around like crazy, or managing businesses, but something is missing. You are surrounded by people throughout the day, but you feel you don’t belong.
As I’ve looked at this over the last month, I’ve realized you and I get those feelings because we aren’t spending quality time with those around us. Yes, we might be working or serving beside others but we aren’t connected due to the fact we haven’t spent quality time together — no agenda, no work, no deadlines.
Take this weekend to plan some quality time with friends, co-workers, and your family. You will begin to feel connected once again.
Do you have suggestions or simple things you do that help keep you connected with others?
Linking up and talking about “together” over at The Gypsy Mama’s today.
