So, my family accidentally left our PS3 on Internet connection for a number of days, and as such we’ve managed to use up a large chunk of our available Internet for this past month. Because of this, I’m going to go on a complete hiatus for 6 days until our next bill comes. That means no blogging for a while after this post.
This is actually a pretty good thing for me, and I feel God had something to do with this. My biggest struggle since becoming a Christian is doing pleasurable things in moderation – eating, Internet time, music, games, movies, etc. I guess it’s to be expected, since I turned to Christ less than a year ago, so I’m still working things out. Anyway, sometimes these activities would cut into my prayer and general worship time, and a few of these past few mornings I woke up realizing I forgot to pray the night before, and then quickly trying to make up for it. My prayers have grown a bit half-hearted as well over the past week.
To compensate, I’ve been kicking myself to be extremely nice to everyone and not lose my temper. But, of course, I can’t leave any commandments out. Prayer and Bible study is a significant part in the life of any Christian, and it influences you in most other areas of your life, too, so if you’re slacking off, it’s going to start to show in your spiritual fruit.
The reason I’m posting this is to ask for some prayer support from my Christian followers. These six days could very well culminate into a huge step forward in my walk with Christ, so all I’m asking is that you prayerfully (literally) lend me some spiritual encouragement.
God bless you and yours, to all of my readers,
