How did you do yesterday with our homework? Did you log your social media hours? I knew my logged time would be high, but I was actually surprised it wasn't higher. I only spent a total of 3hours and 38minutes. That did include reading other blogs but it did not include working on my blog. Including that it was over 4hours. I have set a goal of only 3hours a day, so that is something I will be working on. One of our facebook friends had a suggestion. Go to Timer-tab. As soon as you arrive on that site it is like a stopwatch and starts keeping time. You could even set your internet homepage to timer-tab. Once you are ready to leave the computer, you just hit pause, then when you come back, resume. A great way to keep track. Another thing that I do for my kids, is we have a kitchen timer at their computer table. I tell them how much time they have and set the timer. When it goes off, regardless of what they are doing, they must walk away. Please share your experiences with us. How did you do? What goals are you going to set? Or maybe you do not get on social media often. Social media is good, but should never take the place of time with God or face to face with family and friends.
Today I wanted to share a verse I read in Isaiah that touched me.
"The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength, You will be like a well-watered garden, like an every-flowing spring." Isaiah 58:11
It is extremely hot here in the midwest. I believe with heat index it was up to 116* yesterday and will be the same today. In the morning I watered my flower pots and veggie garden. But with the heat, by noon, they were looking sad and thirsty. They were droopy and looked spent. Come evening when it was time to water them again, at that first drop of water, everything perked up. That was living water to them. They needed it to be happy, healthy and survive.
God is our Living Water. We need Him to be happy, healthy and survive. And He will continually give to us. He waters us when needed. He restores our strength. Turn to God. When things are good, praise Him. When they are bad, rest in Him. Let God be your Living Water.
