Hey y’all! I didn’t get a chance to write last weekend, but I wanted to sit down and tell you guys about some things that have been on my mind and some changes to my blog.
With my new job, I work early in the morning and I’m usually home by noon, sometimes a little earlier. It’s not a full time thing, but because it’s so early for me, by the time I get home I don’t really feel like doing anything. So I basically just lounge around the house and watch a ton of Netflix. I’m sure you can relate 😉
Well anyway, I would end up binge watching tv shows on Netflix that weren’t shows I should be watching as a Christian.
I’ve heard the argument that “it’s just tv, it’s not gonna harm you.” Heck, I’ve even used that argument before. But I’m convinced that tv can do harm to you. Often what we watch directly impacts our thoughts and how we behave. If we’re watching things aren’t glorifying to God, things that we shouldn’t be watching, sooner or later we will begin to think that those things are okay. We may even begin doing them.
My boyfriend recently started writing about Christian entertainment on his ministry blog and it convicted me. But I pushed those convictions aside and explained it away. I wasn’t ready to give up what I wanted to watch.
Then I was reading through my bible app yesterday and the verse of the day was 1 Timothy 4:12, “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
That to me was like a reminder right from heaven that I needed to change what I was doing. I need to be an example to others of my belief, and I need to do it in every aspect of my life. I need to be glorifying God in my speech, my lifestyle, which includes how I entertain myself, how I treat others, in my faith, in my purity.
So as hard as it’s gonna be to make the change and stop watching certain tv programs, I know I need to do it. And Lord willing, I will.
So before I end this, I wanted to let y’all know that I won’t be posting regularly on Saturdays anymore. I want to maybe try posting more than once a week, but I’m finding it hard to stick to a definite schedule. Telling myself that I need to post something on Saturdays, even if I don’t have anything to write, is kinda hard to do. So I will be posting when I can instead of just on Saturdays.
I hope that doesn’t throw any of you off, I just think it’ll be easier for me and it’ll relieve some stress.
As always, thanks so much for reading along. I hope you enjoyed my ramblings on this! 🙂
