As I was sketching this I contemplated who and what I am linked to, both physically and mentally.  Links can lift us up, pull us down, apply pressure, and provide support.  I thought about my links to Christ, family, friends, coworkers, and the world around me.  Links are not always clearly defined and often intermingle.  What is clear to me is that if I allow myself to become linked to things that drag me down it places stress on my entire foundation as well as the foundation of those that are tightly linked to me.  My prayer today is that my first link would always be Christ, and that through him I would find my identity, strength, and self-worth. 

Question to ponder - Who and what are you linked to?

Hebrews 10:19-24

 19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 


  1. Wow, I like this image and the concept. Well worth considering. I feel it when I'm linked to the wrong thing, person or thought system. I even have problems with not enough links, i.e. fellowship.
    Very interesting post, thanks Patrick! Need to develop positive links through Christ.

  2. Debbie, thank you for sharing your thoughts. I walked through my day today categorizing everything as links. Really changed my perspective about a few things.
