Hello everyone, this is Jessica here. I am sooooo happy that we only have
another 2 days until the media fast is over. God has taught me to be more
patient with others and to help each other in tough situations. For example, at
school the other day, my friend walked up to me and asked me why I had chosen to
do the media fast, and I told her it was because I needed to focus less time on
media (that's not God-related), and more time maturing my relationship with the
Lord! She had said that I was crazy for doing it, and that it must be very hard
not to go on media.
Please pray for my missions trip group as we leave
for San Fran tomorrow and as we do our daily activities! I am sorta sad because
I will not have the opportunity to have a "I've completed the media fast"
celebration for 3 more days after it ends. But as crazy as it may seem, I am
okay with waiting 3 more days until watching media again. I will have an
opportunity to hopefully connect with other Christians and to understand God's
big meaning for my life!
I saw this really cool bumper sticker the other day: No Jesus No Peace
Know Jesus Know Peace
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.
Here, you can follow their stories, their lives, and their challenges. Feel free to leave comments and encouragement.
