One of my favorite months of the Seven fast was the media fast. It was hard. I am pretty addicted to media – tv, music, blogs, Facebook. I don’t like to think that I am. I like to think that I a purist and above getting sucked into media, but it’s all false. It was a great experience to detox and have to quiet my mind and thoughts.
Our pastor gave us a challenge this week to detox from media for three days this week, and I’m excited to accept it! I really need this right now. Since I’ve been away from work, I spend a lot more time on the internet and watch a lot more tv. With Baby Bean’s coming arrival and a few other decisions about the upcoming year on the horizon, a fast is absolutely right for me. I need to hear from God right now. I need the quiet of my mind so that He can speak to me and prepare my heart for this transition.
I’ll be back on Thursday!
