I’ve been thinking about my priorities and the need to get them re-ordered for several weeks now. During the last few days God has made it very clear to me that now is the time. I can’t put off prioritizing my time, energy and influence any longer.
What am I giving up? What is changing?
My heart is changing. It’s a God change. He remodeling my heart. He is clearing the cobwebs. He is clarifying my vision so I can learn to see Him in every moment of my day.
My choices of how I spend my time are also changing.
- Instead of picking up my laptop first thing, I’m spending time with my precious Jesus. The least I can do is give Him the beginning of my day rather than the leftovers. If I put off my time with Him, more often than not it doesn’t happen.
- Instead of being chained to my computer 24/7, I’m living life. I’m worth going to work out, spending time with Ridley, going to the park or on bike rides, and spending time with my hubby in the evenings.
Notice a trend? It has to do with this wonderful piece of technology called a laptop. Ahem.
By the grace of God, I’m shaking off the techno idols that have been overtaking my heart.
“The dearest idol I have known,
What’er that idol be
Help me to tear it from Thy Throne
And worship only Thee.”
I will continue to blog, chat, tweet, talk, build community etc, but only after I spend time with God and after I serve my family.
If I don’t do things God’s way I will be completely ineffective in every. single. other. area. of my life.
There is no other way.
Do you struggle with techno idols?
