So, this is my very first attempt at blogging….I’ve always wanted to do it, but never had the nerve to actually do it until NOW!
Well, I guess I can start by saying how I got the nerve to start….
I started this year off by going to the “New Year’s Eve” watch night service at my church. Being around a bunch of crazy Christians on fire for Christ beats any New Year’s Eve Party! My Pastor shared that he wanted the congregation to start a fast. So, I’ve decided to fast from social media. I slowly found myself wrapped up into Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – even reality shows. I felt like I began to drown myself with all the nonsense and worldly desires in the world…it began to stand in between my relationship with God…even with my husband. He would get upset to see me spending so much time on the couch with my laptop or wasting time watching reality shows. Before it grew any worse – I knew right away what I needed to fast.
So, I’ve been on this social media/ reality t.v. fast for about a week now and the time I used to spend on Facebook or watching reality shows – I now devote it to God. I’ve been able to worship Him by reading the word of God, listening to praise and worship music (like Jesus Culture, Kari Jobe, Kris Dilliard, Youthful Praise, Hillsong, Marvin Sapp, Vashawn Mitchell, Natalie Grant, & Chis Tomlin) and listening to sermons from some incredible pastors (like Sheryl Brady, Paula White, Ron Carpenter Jr., Dr. Robert Gladstone, David Popovici, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Dr. Tony Evans, & Dr. Michael L. Brown ).
I’ve decided to take the time to sort of document this experience and share what inspires me to You! Yes, You!…..If you’ve ended up being directed to this page. I believe that you were sent here for a reason. There is something that God wanted to show you or something He wanted to tell you…..I pray that the words on this page move through you to start a burning passion within you. Even, if you already have a moving rush of Holy Spirit Fire – I want to urge you to keep the flame lit! Even, if you used to have a strong passion for God and somehow lost it – I pray that same passion is re-ignited!
