Show Notes

By Dan & Suzie Potter

When we were kids, it seemed like every health issue was cured by taking vitamin C. As we got older we learned that one can never have too much vitamin C, but we will suffer greatly of we have too little.

In life our “Vitamins C” is CONNECTIONS. It is the cure-all mentally, physically and spiritually.

Yet we live in a world, both pre and post COVID, where we have isolated many important connections.  We are surrounded by disconnected relationships, disconnected goals, disconnected beliefs and disconnected priorities.  People are leaving work, education, church and each other like never before.

A disconnected life is like trying to put together a puzzle with missing pieces, WE MUST LIVE CONNECTED.

What we need is “Vitamin F”. FAITHFULNESS is today’s cure. 

One of the fruit of the Spirit is FAITHFULNESS because it holds our connections together. FAITHFULNESS is what a couple commits to on their wedding day. Best friends on the school playground pledge FAITHFULNESS with a “Pinky Promise”. When we join a job, university, church or health club there is this FAITHFUL intention. 

But something happens inside, outside or beside . . . that causes us to set aside FAITHFULNESS and we slide into DISCONNECTION.

Here are the 2 FAITHFULNESS secrets from Proverbs 3:3-4  

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
     1. bind them around your neck,
    2. write them on the tablet of your heart. 

Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”

If you want to realign your CONNECTIONS, you have to: 

  • “Bind them . . . neck” - place FAITHFUL reminders around you, so you can remain connected, even on really tough days. The reminders turn your head and take you from “feels” back into the “facts”.
  • “Write them . . . heart” - Commit! At weddings we say “I do!”, at work, on a team, for a party, or with a secret we say yes not only for the good moment, but also through the hard. So deep in our heart, where we deeply feel we write “You can trust me because I will be FAITHFUL to you!”

FAITHFULNESS to ourself or to others is one of life’s hard things. But that choice is the one thing that can cause everyone to remain CONNECTED.

 So begin by finding one disconnection and work towards you being FAITHFUL . . . neck and heart! 

FAITHFULNESS is part of the 9 ALIGN Series. We can help you to create your own ALIGNMENT tool kit. It will cover your relationships, thoughts, emotions, time, significance, values, connectedness, power and choices. Just imagine having the right tool at the right time.

Each week you can read about it here or listen to our Just Live Podcast. Both are being created to help you put LIVING back into your LIFE.
