Sometimes God says, “take a step back, evaluate, make a choice.” This is what I was confronted with this summer…
I was studying through the book of James with my Bible study (and Beth Moore) when I was slapped in the face with her lesson on “being too connected.” She talks about a digital world where we are always so connected with others and a real world where we just aren’t.
I originally started my blog to help other people learn how to save money. This summer, while studying James, it occurred to me… Am I still really doing this to help people, or am I doing this to prove to people I’m relevant ?
The truth is, I don’t have to prove it to you.
That’s what freedom in Jesus Christ is all about.
He loves me. He saved me. He is enough.
I decided to take a break from my blog and get real.
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.’ James 1:22
I made playdates with friends. I called people on the phone. I spent time with my husband. And instead of complaining about being with my children 24/7, I invested in them.
I tried to be a doer and not a hearer only.
I feel refocused and rejuvenated, and I’m back.
