Entering Into Someone Else’s Battle
“Connecting begins when we enter into someone else’s battle to experience God with the empathy of a fellow struggler and the faith to know it can happen. So much ‘connecting’ centers on our problems in the hope that someone can make them go away. True connecting centers on the spirit within us, that awakened capacity to experience God.”
Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 151
Questions for Reflection:
•Is there someone that you are longing to connect with in their struggles?
• What has hindered that in the past?
• How might your engaging that person as a fellow struggler, believing that God longs to reveal Himself in and to you both, change the way you relate?
