I have been disconnected feeling for so many years, from myself, from others, and worst of all, from God. And, when I have had the opportunity to connect I have pulled away, recoiled like a snake stepped on whose only reflex is to tangle up on itself.

I have purposed this year with my OneWord365 to be “intentional”. How that is going to play out, I don’t know. But, I am excited to be intentional with my children, my parents, my boyfriend, and of course my relationship with Christ -my God.

The desire to connect to myself and to others, especially the One who created me, has overridden the desire to pull into myself and hide from the world the way I used to. I want to, no I need to, live life in the love that was ordained by Christ Himself when He spoke to us saying “And a new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you…” He didn’t add in an “if, and, or, but, unless” etc to the command, so I am going to live with the intent to connect through Christ, to connect in love and to work at connecting with my soul and strive to reach my potential.

I love connecting with each of you every week as we flash-mob write. As we tweet about sports and justice and chocolate and ask for prayers. Connecting through our own words and the Word of God, the words in the books of our dear friends as they follow where they are to be lead.

I am excited to see who will join us this year and who I will connect with and what we will connect over, maybe a favorite dish, children the same age, mentors or a friendship that makes no sense to the naked eye but simply feels natural and right.

  1. Marisa, your intention speaks to me – connecting through Christ, through love, and with your soul. So important and so easy to slip away from intention. Thank for the reminders. Dropping in from FMF.

    • I am so glad that my desire/need to be intentional has spoken to you today!! It is always exciting when my words greet the people who need to hear them! Many blessings to you and yours!

  2. Intentional is such a great one word. I need to be more intentional too. I love the connections we’ve made too. So good to see you back here friend. I’m in the 9 parking spot this week.

    • Thank you Tara!! I love your encouragement here and on Twitter!! You are an awesome inspiration and a great friend! I am excited to see what the year brings you!!!

  3. Being Intentional takes work and guts, Go Girl!

  4. So glad you are being intentional about being connected. I think we share some of the same tendencies and so I can understand the effort it takes. Don’t give up!
