Time to de-clutter

4 Aug

I’m going to slip away for a little while.

I’m not done writing; I’m not done blogging. But it’s time to de-clutter my world of distractions for the time being. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in social media, and it’s not just Facebook anymore. It’s Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, WordPress, Blogger, Google+, YouTube… you name it.

Don’t get me wrong, this blog is a huge blessing to me and has been imperative to my spiritual growth because it allows me not only to pen my lessons and look back on them later, but also to joyfully obey 2 Corinthians 1. But sometimes it consumes too much of my time and becomes a distraction.

will be back – I will complete the Wait for Me series! I have no idea how long I’ll be – it could be a few days or a few months. (In the mean time, please pick the book up for yourself!)

All I know is that it’s time to press pause, to be still, to listen and to obey.

    I fully understand…even had to do that myself a while back. Enjoy the ‘quiet’ time. We’ll be here when you return.

    Just a suggestion, but you could consider having some friends ‘guest blog’ while you’re gone to keep up your readership. Hope you enjoy your Sabbath time away 🙂

      Hi there! Thank you for the suggestion! I will have to do that for next time.
      I’m back from my break, and I just wanted to let you know that some changes will be coming to my blog come September 1…hope you’ll stick around! 🙂
