On God and Relationships...and stuff

What's up people?

Sorry, I couldn't think of a better intro after four days of absence. So, I'm in a good place. Which is wonderful and terrible at the same time. Great because good places are typically a foreign concept to me. Terrible because they are also terrifying as I tend to wait patiently for the bottom to drop out and then be even more miserable after having been a true live part of said good place. Did you get all that?

Here is a struggle I am having currently. It's about people. It's always about people, isn't it. No, I'm kidding, it usually isn't, but now it is. I sound like I am on crack or something. I'm not. ;) I'm typing this at work, so perhaps I am feeling like I can't really zone in, I don't know. Anyway, back to people. I have issues with dependence on people vs. Dependence on God. Maybe not vs. but in correlation too. If you are supposed to be completely dependent on God, than why do you depend on other people? How do you? For me, were I to allow it, I would far more easily depend on another person as they are tangible while God is not. However, being that I am a tad of an extremist, I have a very hard time not becoming too dependent on people. So, where is the balance. I know that we are supposed to have intimate friendships, Jesus did. I know that we are supposed to have a network of close people, Jesus did. And even a larger support system, ie: the church, Jesus had that, too. I still don't know how to find the balance in that, though.

Ok, this isn't profound or anything, just something that is bouncing around my brain. Have a great weekend!
