Are you ready for yet another incredible installment of our “Everyday Jesus” guest blogging series? I sure hope so… because this one, written by my sweet friend Amy, is a doozy. Her perspective will surely make your scratch your head (in a good way!) and her personality will make you want to reach through the screen and drag her to Starbucks for a face-to-face chat about… well, anything! This gal is an incredibly talented writer and such a passion for Jesus that it’s contagious.
So yes, meet Amy. And be sure to show her the love both here and over at her place!
Always impressed by Him,
And so I pull the plug. No blogging for a week or maybe even two.
I decide Jesus is present in the quiet mornings of my home, and I need time to think about the realness of my smiling square “friends”.
And then I receive a text inquiring about my new job. From an online friend.
And an email asking if I need anything. From an online friend.
And a call filled with giggles. From an online friend.
And my iPad rings. Oh, it’s an online friend.
Jesus sneaks up.
He tells me my online friends may not be sitting in front of me, but He instructs me to embrace the love they share anyway.
Then, Jesus surprises me.
Although He doesn’t tell me, I get the distinct impression Jesus doesn’t feel all of the online chatter is shameless self-promotion, nope. Instead, I think He’s thrilled to be the focus of conversation and happy people are connecting in His name.
Your turn: Tell me about the people you have met online. Do you ever wonder about the authenticity of your online relationships? Have you seen real friendships bloom out of a shared passion for spreading ideas about Jesus online?
