The Foundational Relationship

Last time we talked about the ultimate broken relationship and the effect that brokenness has on us all. I want to pick up where we left off and discuss the hard truths.
For those of you reading who are not religious in any way, you might deny this – and I again request that you be completely honest with yourself. You might claim to be happy, or satisfied where you are, but constantly seek the next thrill, the better job or pay-raise, the next thing to come your way. You may be always seeking, wondering, looking. You will never find that completion, that fullness, until you come to a right, an entire relationship, with God. Jesus says, in John 14:6, “I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man may come unto the Father except through Me.” God recognized the brokeness and it broke His heart. He sent His only begotten Son, Who lived a perfect human life, struggled with the same issues we face, and died on the cross to restore us to our Father and rose from the dead to offer Hope – the hope of a new life, a transformed mind, and a continually growing/deepening love. There will be those who argue with this first foundation. There will be those who deny there’s anything wrong with them – at first. But over the next few weeks we’ll look at this relationship in more detail; we’ll explore relationships with family and generational patterns; we’ll delve into relationships with friends and coworkers and even your neighbor and complete strangers. We’ll look at using solution-focused brief therapy techniques for strengthening personal relationships, setting goals, exercises to get you to the next step and how to overcome mini crises that arise as you move to a more fulfilled you. We’ll navigate through unhealthy relationships, unrealistic expectations, and finding the ultimate Truth for yourself. 

I will do my best to address this topic every week but in the meantime, please feel free to discuss.
