“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners” Isaiah 61:1-2

Alone, we all stand slightly broken.

Twisted. Out of bent. Huddled against the wind, pushing into the night.

They say no man is an island.

So why do so many of us live our lives like we can make it all on our own?

Spending our time and our energy protecting the little we have, instead of investing it in order to receive more?

God glued us together to make more, not less.photo

We don’t lose ourselves when we pool our resources, we become more than the sum of our parts when we let God take what we have and glue us together for the greater good. Let’s be more. Let’s be glued together.
