Plug in

plug in

Joshua 1:8
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

It’s very interesting how our society is so plugged in to electronics and social-media. It affects the young and old. Our sons can have a total meltdown when their tablet or Nintendo 3ds is taken away or when it needs to be charged. Sometimes my husband and I are no better. If we can’t find our cell phones it’s like somebody just cut off our arm or took our best friend away.

The other day my 2 year old helped me realize that my family has a serious issue with being plugged in.   It was 6 o’clock in morning and I was awakened by his screaming. He couldn’t turn on my iPad to watch a movie. I thought “this is ridiculous.” But then I started to ask myself if God feels like the parent of a screaming two year old when we don’t plug into Him and into his word on a daily basis. We then expect for God to give us what we ask for in our prayers.

My challenge to you is to unplug from social media, electronics, and your cell phone for 30 minutes or even an hour each day to just plug into God.

Dear God,

Thank You for another beautiful day. I am filled with joy as I take this time just to spend it with You. I pray this week that when I want to check my social media or watch television that I am reminded of You and Your love for me. Help me to spend time with You. Allow me to be productive, invest in my family and actively love others.

Amen.
