I only deleted my Facebook yesterday and I feel like I'm trying to find other things on the internet to fill that time...instead of getting things done that I really need to get done!
There have been multiple times (already!) that I have been tempted to just jump back on. All I have to do is login and my account is back up and running. Deep down I know that is NOT what I want to do. I know I don't want to get sucked back in to all the drama and reading about people's lives that I don't care about anyway. I don't want to do it. But I do want to do it. So weird, right?
Sounds kinda like this... "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do." -Romans 7:15
Yes, that's exactly it. I haven't broken down yet and signed on or anything, but I think about it a lot. I get on the computer still and then I realize that I really have nothing to do. I already checked my email. I already went on Pinterest.
I have read quite a bit of my most recent book and I did finish Makayla's Tinkerbell skirt for her party on Saturday, but I still pick up my computer.
It's going to be a constant struggle for me...at least for a while. I know that and I'm willing to endure it and get past it. It might sound crazy that I'm talking about Facebook this much, but it's true. For some reason, I'm addicted to reading other people's crap. Yet, at the same time, I'm bound to change my course. Make myself free from the system. And in turn use my time wisely to complete projects, clean my house, read my books, spend time with my girls.
I'm doing it. And I'm holding fast.
"But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil." -1 Thessalonians 5:21
