I think we all love sharing our successes with our moms. Many times when I’ve shared with Mom, she reminds me “You’ve always known what you wanted. You’ve given it to yourself.”
And whilst these words express my fierce independence - this has come at a cost ... disconnection.
You see I’ve always thought to be connected to God means not necessarily connecting to people - that somehow we can find our sacred center without others.
Now I realise how wrong I was and that it is within the spaces of relationship that Christ can do his greatest grace-filled work.
“Where two or more gather in my name, there I will be.” - Matthew 18:20
In clarity, care calm and courage.
