I am still on my net-fast. I will be doing without the world wide web until at least Thursday. If I feel like I should go longer, I will. So far I am doing real good. I have spent more time with GOD on my mind and I can truly see how he is working in and around my life. Things just seem to be working out better in several ways. Today Jason did a food fast and I bet he feels the same. Sometimes it’s easier to be thankful for what we have been given when we do without. Someone wiser than me once said: “you don’t realize what your idols are until they are threatened or removed.” I think for me my sites are/were a controlling issue. I would check Digg, Ebay and Gizmodo over 10 times a day! Even when I was away from the house all day, the fist thing I would do when I got back was check my e-mails and my sites! I know I didn’t pray or acknowledge God that many times every day! And I know when I arrive back home after being away, I didn’t go straight to God in prayer or read in His word. So in your life, what is the think you don’t think you could do without? Why not? Who gave it to you in the first place?
For those just checking in: I am on a fast from the web. I can blog, and check my emails but thats it! For me thats huge but GOd is bigger!
Up here in NYC I have been going without TV for the most part... I really can do things without having a tv on in the background. I did watch the Tony Awards though... because I had been on the red carpet watching everybody go in. Definitely thinking about the concept of fasting more... keep up the good work!
I hate to admit it, but the computer is my vice too. I am constantly checking my email. When there's nothing there, I hop around everyone's blogs. Then, I got to the news sites... I even go to my credit union when I can't think of anything else to do... and then when all eles fails, I play solitaire. It sounds funny, but I guess it's pretty sad/bad. I may need to evaluate myself on this...
Way to go Claude!! I know I am the same way. We cut back tremendously on the TV but I find myself on the net more. Keep up the inspiration!@!
