Recap of the Unplugging Challenge

So last month a did a post that talked about an Unplugging Challenge. I decided I was going to give some things I enjoyed doing for one entire week at a time. The first week was Instagram, the following was blogging, reading, and ultimately all I- pod touch use.

Ohh what fun this month has been! I have really enjoyed this challenge. It wasn't easy, but it most certainly hurt the flesh.  I had time for other things, than just reading, and blogging. Though if I was off on reading than you'd catch me on instagram, and vice versa. Even though I substituted my time with what I was allowed to do, it felt good to refrain from doing what I couldn't do. The self control that I had to exhibit was enormous, but ultimately satisfying.

Now, I do not think I will do this every month, but I have been considering doing at least one, once a month.

I would really encourage you readers to give up some things that occupy your time, it may seem hard, but the spiritual reward is greater.

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17

be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer."
