Unplug & Refocus

Every once in awhile, God points you to something that He uses to touch you, convict you right down to your very core. This is what He did to me this morning.

As I began to scroll through the status updates of the morning, I was drawn to a post entitled, How to Miss a Childhood. I assumed it would be about having our children in too many activities, over-extending them too early in life and them missing out on a true childhood. I couldn't have been more wrong!! The post spoke to the very heart of the matter. It exposed what parents are doing (what I am doing) every day that is taking priority over spending quality time with our kids. It's robbing our children of the childhood they truly desire and us of the joy and fulfillment of special moments, memories that will last a lifetime. 

If there is one blog post you read today, please visit Hands Free Momma. How to Miss a Childhood really opened my eyes to changes that I need to make today!!  Starting today, I plan to consiously make the effort to unplug and refocus. Won't you join me?

Went over and read it! Wow!!! Very eye opening. I don't use my phone a lot but I do check my computer more than I should. The Lord has convicted me about it, and I am trying my hardest to leave it alone. I am glad to say that is has worked!

Ashley, I'm so glad to hear that it is working! I'm going to really stay focused to break some bad habits. Keep me posted on how you are doing. Maybe we can keep each other accountable. Be blessed!

I read this yesterday as well- it is so true and something we ALL could glean from.
