When was the last time you talked to God face to face like a friend? If you have been feeling disconnected from God the answer is Prayer. Prayers are not empty words hurled at the heavens, they are an actual conversation with God. So get talking.
Jesus said if you want to be great in the Kingdom of God be a servant. That word doesn't always resonate with us, we want to be leaders, trailblazers, influencers, if we are honest many of us want to be served, not be servants. But the mark of a life sold out to God is that people would say about you, as they said about Dorcas (yes, that's really her name) "She was always doing kind things for others and helping the poor." Acts 9:36 (NLT)
It's time to reconnect. We have been in lockdown for a long... LONG.... L..O..N..G.. time. We are getting ready to return to life and the first thing you need to return to is meeting with people. God designed us to lie in community and Good relationships keep us happier and healthier, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
It's that time of year, the time to plant, the time that dead things come back to life. We see the resurrection in nature every year about this time. Can you imagine a year where every seed buried in the ground didn't rise up? There is a difference between being buried, and being planted. Buried things are dead. Planted things rise up to new life.
