that i figured this thing out. so i have a little side story for you guys that are reading this to kill time: for the past four days i have been trying to find out how to log on to ourthirty and i couldn't figure it out, so it was making me angry because i kept on looking for a log in button. (and i am almost positive this happened to me last year also..)anyway i texted maggie to see what she did and she was like "blogspot.com" so then i go there and turns out i was still logged on from last year!!!! crazy ehhh???
anyways....my first four days have been pretty good actually. i have not had many challenges so far but im sure there are many to come. on monday i didnt really feel like i was in it for God to be honest, i mean it didn't feel like anything special until i did the first devo later that night....Hebrews 12:1 pretty much says that we need to get rid of all the sin that holds us back and even with media fast, there is still a lot of sin in our lives. devo #2 really got to me! especially 1 John 2:15 which said if you love the world, the love of the father in not in you. Dude is that crazy or what?!?!?! i don't know about the rest of you guys, but that freaked me out a little.....i mean there is so much awesome stuff that we have and everybody has something they love right? anyways the devo's have been really helping me out and giving me more encouragement so thanks matt! another reason that i think it hasn't been very hard for me is because my sister has decided to do it also, which i'm soo very thankful for!(especially since now we share a room) i'm positive that if she wouldn't have done it with me then it would be 100 times harder.....
so i hope you guys are all doing good! :)
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.
