My mind is overloaded with information and lots of thoughts. Some thoughts are very introspective and deep. Other thoughts include how I wish I was downtown to help rip down the LeBron sign. AND how we need to replace it with a Betty White poster. Actually, I'd say that qualifies as a deep thought too.
Anyway, I've been trying to work through some life stuff lately and I want to hear from God. I want to listen. So how do you do that?
I heard a verse from the Bible on Sunday night - Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God." I've heard that one many times, but this time it struck me... am I being still? Even when I have some "downtime," I am still filling my brain with useless information. Let's get real here.. usually Facebook information! It's embarrassing how much time I spend on my cute little mobile device. Five minutes here.. ten minutes there... 100 minutes later.... ouch. Can anyone relate?
I love Facebook and keeping in touch with people. People's statuses make me laugh out loud at times! (What can I say, I have witty and clever friends.) However, I have read that social networking can add extra stress and anxiety to a person's life. I can see that happening in my life, can you?
So that's my step this week. Detox from social networking for awhile. Yesterday was my first attempt. I loved it. I'm going to keep going. Not sure when I'm going to stop. But I do know it's been an awesome new step in a process to "be still and know that He is God."
PS - If you are on Facebook today, please join the FB group that is rooting for Betty White to be the next oversized poster in Cleveland! ;-) (I told you I'm in detox...)
