These past 3 weeks I have been challenged to look at what consumes me and my time. In April I was challenged during my quiet time to fast. I have never fasted before and so I decided that I would love to. I asked the Lord what shall I fast. He said Facebook and Instagram. What? It was spring break and the Instagram girl that I am I wanted to share all the fun we were having on spring break. I also wanted to be obedient to the Lord. I ask the lord why those two things. Well those two things CONSUME your time. So I did. It was awesome! I felt like I had added hours to my day. I was much more focused on other things.(my quiet time, exercising, time with friends, my business) I wasn't on my phone every time I had free and every time I thought about it I would start praying. On my heart during my fast was my husband. I prayed for him. Since that time I have had less desire to be on the computer. I have had more time reading, organizing, and adventures with the kids. Jimmy and I have had a great conversations in the evening while we are settling in for the night. So my question to you is what consumes you? Is it the TV, a game, FB, IG, video games, pinterst, the computer, new apps, WHAT??
I am learning that I need to focus my attention in other places. That my phone doesn't always have to be with me. I am not really missing out on anything, but I am gaining so much more. Yes I am still on FB and yes I am still am on IG but I am not letting it consume my time. People don't need to know my every move and what I am doing.
I am so thankful that I came to this Revelation because I needed it. I am excited to see all that God has before me and my family.
