Okay, so yea, I can’t exactly give up my cell phone right now. I’m a military wife, with a husband serving overseas, I am NOT going to miss his calls. But, I am going to give up the IPAD and any non-essential digital device applications for the rest of this month. I had the idea when I realized that when I am stressed, worried, or panicked even (I’m a foster mom, this happens daily) I reach for the device. I post on Facebook asking for prayer before I even pray for the situation myself. Something is really very wrong with that! I’m not doing it anymore! I KNOW that our situation with our foster babies needs prayer! I KNOW that the ONLY answer to my worry and frustration with their case is to bring it to God and to lay it at the feet of Jesus.
So, instead of posting, texting or messaging for the rest of this month, I’m going “old fashioned” and journalling my “conversations with God.” I’m going to keep track of my thoughts and prayers and give them to Jesus. I’m going to create a notebook where I can keep track of my prayers and witness the answers that God gives me. Even if those answers are not the ones I’m expecting or anticipating, I want to keep track of them.
I want an amazing testimony when this is all said and done and I can’t have that if I don’t MOVE MY BEHIND over and give God room to work! I absolutely HAVE TO LET GO. So, here it goes! I’m gonna try! Wish me luck!
