What am I doing?
So I have recently decided to go on a fast. Not an eating fast, but more of a “life cleansing” fast. I deleted all of my social media in order to limit distractions and embrace silence. I have created a playlist of spiritual and uplifting music that I will be listening to instead of my usual “fun” music. I will trying not to “waste time” and instead filling my free time with productivity, prayer, & spending quality time with friends.
Why am I doing it?
I am challenging myself to “21 days with God” and trying to limit the amount of distractions in my life so that I may draw nearer to Him. Over the past several months I have felt myself pushing boundaries and accepting things into my life that I should not be allowing in. I am thinking of it as a “reset” button if you may. Life has been a real struggle and I am slowly realizing that I need God now more than I have ever before.
How am I doing it?
Great question, I am not really sure. I am not following a predetermined book or outline I am literally just going with the flow. I plan on following the Spirit and allowing God to reveal things to me as He sees best fit. I have decided to create this blog for accountability and for the sheer fact that I really love to write. (I never said I was good at it so do not judge me! & I apologize in advance for grammatical errors because I am sure there will be tons.) I have also taken a big step and I have decided to let people know what I am doing, because we all need support. Blogs have become very popular over the past couple of years and I was like hey what the heck, why not?! So here we are haha If you are reading this thank you for your support and I pray that God uses me to send you a message if it be His will. If no ones reads this and I am just posting into the endless abyss of the cyber world then great!
I have outlined three goals I wish to achieve during this time and there are as follows:
- Relying on God’s guidance for every decision
- Strengthen relationships with friends, family, etc.
- Embrace everyday with peace and productivity
