Being Intentional To Connect
Posted on: March 5, 2014, by : Brandon Gilliland

Something that I have been thinking a lot about lately is being intentional.¬†Everyone has a story and each person you come into contact with each day has specific needs. In order to make an impact on someone’s life, you have to be intentional.




It is often hard for us in the busyness of life to stop to connect with others. Our world has become disengaged from each other. While we have the opportunities to become close and connected, it seems as if we are growing farther away.


I believe it is time to reverse that trend.


Take some time today to connect with someone. You cannot impact this world and start to amplify God’s kingdom if you first do not have the desire to connect with others. I wrote a few posts a while back about connecting. You can find them below:


Living An Intentional Lifestyle

Connectors Must Connect On Common Ground With Others


How can you start to connect with others to make an impact?

  • Being intentional about sharing God’s love takes effort. There are numerous places and ways we can connect with others- at the gas station, in line at the grocery store, in a waiting room, etc.
    There are people everywhere, we just have to take the time to SEE them. Then, we must listen.
