Take Time to Pause
Posted by Steph Whitley on 08/31/2020
I am feeling so distracted these days. I think I got into some bad habits with my phone when Covid hit. I would want to be up to date on the latest news. And then with quarantine I was home and found myself endlessly scrolling the news/social media. When I go through my days distracted, I am less productive and I am not connecting with God as much I would like.
God, help me to be intentional with quietening the noise and limiting my distractions. Help me to pause often throughout my day and pray. And help me to “check-in” with You more than I check-in with the world.
Please hear me! It’s a daily choice for me and some days I do better then others. Here are some tools I have used....checking the news once a day, setting a timer for Instagram, placing a book/journal near my couch, putting my phone away, or taking a break from social media. What helps you? We can learn from one another.
