Wow. This month has been crazy busy with school, and needles to say its been stressful. Like I said in my last post, I don't even know where the media would fit into everything. All this preoccupation with school, grades, sports, family, friends, etc all seems to come before my sole purpose of this month: dedicating to God. Even mornings, where I usually spend time in the word, have been cut short because of lack of sleep, sometimes this time is even completely forgotten.
Today everything just started to build up inside me so I went for a run when I got home to clear my head. I blasted my Christian music (of course) and didn't stop. While running, my lungs burning, I found that when I tried to focus and look at everything going on around me, I was distracted and it became harder to focus on breathing. When I got home and had a chance to cool down, I realized that God used this to show me something very important: He said focus on me not all the distractions going on around you. Yes, it is still going to hurt but when you focus on me I am in control. Its just like Peter walking on water. Though the waves are always tossing around you, trust in me.
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.
