To my Dear Friends,
God has been showing me things about my life lately that I need to change. My desire is to become the godly woman he wants me to be. One area of my life that desperately needs more discipline is the time I spend on my laptop. Most of my day was spent in front of the computer …and I’ve wasted a lot of time. I haven’t been diligent with my hours, and I have not been growing closer to God.
I had a talk with my parents yesterday morning and they told me that they want me to spend at least a month away from the computer… no blogging, no emailing. And you know what? They are absolutely right. I firmly maintain that I have the best parents in the world – 🙂 – and I am so grateful to have them pouring their wisdom and insight into me. This would have been an exceedingly difficult choice for me to make without their help and encouragement. It’s still not easy, but I know it’s the right thing to do.
Now that I won’t be on my laptop all the time, I’ll have more time to spend doing real-life activities. Firstly, I’ll have more time to spend in the Word with open eyes and heart. But I’ll also be able to create more handmade things and do a better job at my homemaking skills… I might even get a part-time job somewhere. We’ll have to see what God has in store.
I would appreciate your prayers for both me and my family. We are still waiting on God to provide a steady job for my Dad. But we are trusting in His goodness and delighting in his love.
I never thought I would say this, but I am actually excited about what this different season of no computer is going to bring. I’m looking forward to doing more outside the computer – making memories with my family and growing in grace into the Julia that God intends me to be. 😀
Love & Blessings,
