I've heard of this before, but never really considered doing one. I was reading an article called 6 habits of Christians. It hit me then how much time I really do spend on social media. I check it when I first wake up, throughout the day when I'm bored, and spend hours at night pinning, tweeting, and liking endless photos. What if I focused all this time on God?
So starting in Janurary, every time I feel the erg to send a tweet or post an amazing Instagram picture, I'll head to my Bible instead. I'm hoping that this will be helpful. I know if I follow through, it will make for a much better life. I obsess over ever social media post. I get excited when I get a certain amount of likes or if I'm snapchatting a humorous video. However, I am very interested to see how my relationship with God grows.
During my fast, I will be checking only emails, text messages, phone calls, soroity post (so I know about meetings & events), and Facebook messenger for my dog, baby, and house sitting customers.
Please wish me luck and pray for me that I stay devoted to my decisions.
