As a first-timer who's sister did the media fast, I was very excited to finally get to be a part of it. It is not quite as glorious as I expected, but I am still grateful that I am doing it! I have been successful so far, and it is a LOT harder that I thought it would be. I have mostly spent my time reading, whether it's Christian books, or the Bible. I have my Media Fast music set apart from my other music, which has been VERY hard not to listen to. I feel good about being able to sing worship songs to God in the morning instead of songs about Taylor Swift's love difficulties. I recently read Matthew 16: 24-28, which talks about giving our whole selves to God. I have been really trying hard to live that out. It has been a pretty good experience so far, and I am excited to see what will come in the next few days!
What is a 30-Day Secular Media Fast?
What if the noise of godless media is drowning out the voice of God? Not all media is bad... but maybe the distraction away from God is making harder to hear and see God at work.
This is a journey of a group of high school students who have committed to take 30 days to focus on God through God-centered media. This includes TV, movies, books, magazines, smart phone apps, and many social media outlets.
