Good morning.


Jesus maintained three primary kinds of relationships: a relationship with his Heavenly Father, with his friends, and with the world around him. Like Jesus, we operate best when we have a solid relationship with our Heavenly Father, a small group of friends we can be real with, and a community we’re plugged into.


We all have a deep-seated longing to belong. We desire to be in relationship with one another. We don’t function well when we’re left to ourselves. But sadly, loneliness is at epidemic proportions. We live in a culture full of disconnected people longing for connections.


It’s not good for us to be alone. We were created by God to be in relationship with Him, so whether or not we know it, we will always crave that relationship. We all long to belong.


Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ both placed a priority on life-giving relationships. We’re at our best when we have a thriving relationship with our Heavenly Father, a small group of friends to do life with, and a community we’re plugged into.


Jesus said: "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:34)


Let's do it together.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
