This week my church is encouraging people to fast and pray for the church and our community. For the past year or so I have been really thinking about fasting, but have never done it. I came to the conclusion that I love food (mainly ice cream) way to much to not eat. I know that is a horrible reason not to fast, seeing that God told us to do it.
However, I have decided to "fast" from the computer. I'm going to go from tomorrow to next Monday with no computer. This means no email, no spider solitaire, and worst of all no blogging. Will I make it? I hope so! I don't think anyone has died from internet withdraw...have they? I might be the first.
Seeing that I spend WAY to much time on the computer, my hubby asked me if I was going to be spending all the time I would be on the computer in prayer. My answer to him was no. Yes I will be spending much more time in prayer, but I also want to spend time doing other things for the Lord. This may be cleaning the house, writing letters, or doing laundry but I will be doing them for the Lord.
Please pray for me this week while I'm internet free!!!
