At the beginning of August, I shared a blog post in regards to a challenge that was laid upon my heart. The challenge consisted of not going on any social media handles. I mean absolutely nothing. Some of the social media handles include YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Pinterest and etc. This challenge has been so interesting by far. So the month of August is coming to an end, so I just wanted to update you guys on how this challenge has been for me.
At the start of the challenge, I felt that it would be difficult for me since I was including YouTube in this challenge. Everything else for the most part was not as difficult as YouTube. Weeks have passed by and I’m so glad to say that this challenge has been going great. It’s been a time well spent in the presence of God. A time of refreshing looking at the clouds, listening to the birds chirp, writing, listening to worship music on Spotify since YouTube is not allowed in this challenge. This challenge is doable, I promise you. When I started this challenge, I only told one of my friends. Though this challenge is about to be over, you are still welcomed to partake in this blessing. I pray that you are blessed. This challenge may seem difficult because you are so used to being on social media, but I promise you that you can do it. There’s a time for everything. There’s nothing that is impossible with God.
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” -John 15:5
My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. -Proverbs 3
