#lessnoisemoreGOD is all about wanting to hear from God. Since this post is here I am officially disconnected. I am taking a social networking sabbatical for 40days starting tonight at 9:30PM, September 1, 2009. I have a lot of noise in my life right now and really need to turn down the volume on a few things so that I can direct as much attention as I can towards God. Noise is not necessarily a bad thing but too much of it can steal your attention away from the main thing. Social networking, twitter, facebook, and my blog are the things that I feel need to turn down.
As I said this is all about paying close attention and just wanting to be in the presence of God. I feel adamantly that God has something in store for me and my family and it is going to take great faith, and complete surrender. Two things which I feel I could use a lot more of. I picked up a book a few months ago entitled, “A Call To Die” it is a 40 day devotional book that has a lot of scripture memorization and one of the requirements is to give up something that takes up your time and focus the time on God. I have been hesitant to start it simply because I like connecting with everyone I have met on twitter/facebook but I have to say goodbye for now.
So here is the deal.
- I will not be on my facebook, twitter, or posting any blog post with the exception of 2 Book Reviews which is due for a book program I am part of and already have the books for.
- I am unsubscribing to all of my Google reader subscriptions. I am taking facebook, and twitter apps off of my blackberry to avoid any urge to post an update.
- Over the next forty days, my main goal is to connect with God and listen.
- Those of you that were following along with my daily devo’s on the book of Galatians, continue to read a chapter a day using the S.O.A.P process and listen out for what God is saying. Sorry if you were all pumped about reading what I had to say for the rest of the week but….LISTEN TO GOD INSTEAD, HIS VOICE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MY THOUGHTS.
- Whether you follow me on twitter, your friends with me on facebook, or stay up to date here at my blog, please keep me lifted that there will be no interruptions and I will hear God clearly over the next 40days.
Thanks for reading and I will tweet ya on the 11th of October no earlier than 9:30PM EST.
