I went to get the car washed. It was on my to-do list. I can wash the car, and I have taught the kids how to wash the car. At this point, it had been neglected enough that I needed to let a professional take over – it also got me out of the house. So, I went to get the car washed.
It never ceases to amaze me how my to-do list often lines up with Divine appointments. This day, the young man sitting behind the counter and I had a chance to share a wonderful conversation about purpose and directions. It ended back at a place that is becoming all too familiar to me – RELATIONSHIPS.
It seems I am not the only person hungry for relationships. There are a lot of us out there searching for connections. I am encountering people in every direction that desire relationships – first with God and then with others that have that relationships with God. We all want to be connected and united because we were formed with that purpose in mind.
My next stop, I tried to orchestrate my divine appointment. I should know by now that when I do it myself, it does not work out quite the same. But I was determined, and in all of my determination I did discover that the need to connect covers all walks of life and points in life.
In all of my goings and all of my encounters, I began to find my way to a unique idea. What if I were to invest fifteen minutes of my day fostering relationships? It is not much time. There should be plenty of fifteen minute chunks in my day that I could find a way to utilize. I expect that when I make the investment I will not only find myself in more Divine appointments, but that my own life will be dramatically changed.
Will you join me in the challenge? Invest just fifteen minutes each day growing and making relationships. Leave a comment here about what you are doing or how it is affecting your own life. Link back to your posts. Let this be the place where we start getting connected to the world around us through those connections Divinely appointed for change.
