Screenless Mornings

In preparing my sermon about our addictions in life, I realized that I needed to make some changes. I have to work hard to protect my time alone with God each day. I’m wired as a task oriented person who likes to get things done. It is too easy to start each day reading emails, making phone calls, and start working on my to-do list without taking the time to focus my day. So I am setting some boundaries to ensure that I start each day off right. For the first hour and half each morning, I am going screenless. No computer, no cell phone, no tv, no email, no blogger, no twitter, no Google Reader. Nothing but my books, my Bible, and my God. I am several days into this commitment and I can already tell a huge difference. If we want to be disciplined, then we must be willing to do something about it. I feel like I was letting all the computer stuff come between me and my time with God, so I made some changes.

What are you struggling with?
What is coming between you and God?
What changed do you need to make in your life?

Don’t be afraid to make the tough decisions.
