Feeling the Feels
Remember when I told you all about my 24 phoneless hours?
Going without a phone for 24 hours made me realize how many moments I use my phone in order to escape feelings of discomfort – perhaps that discomfort is loneliness, so I’m looking for connection. I may be bored, and looking for a way to entertain myself. Or, even worse, I have an important task I need to complete, and I’m using my phone to numb out.
Not having my phone yesterday made me realize I probably could benefit from having a set weekly day where there’s no phone, and I can confront the overreliance.
A big aspect of maturity is growing to a space where you can give up the habits that are no longer serving you, or the person you wish to become.
What are some habits you can stand to outgrow today?
Thank you for every lesson that you teach so freely, and for the control that you give us to make the best decisions for ourselves. Lord, I ask that you continue to reveal the spaces in my life where I can decrease my dependence on external happiness so that I may increase my dependence on you to fill those spaces with joy.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Won’t He do it? We’re overcoming our challenges, an removing the obstacles out of our way. We got this.
