Turn my eyes from worthless things.

Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things and revive me in your way.
Psalm 119:37

How easy is it to get consumed by worthless things? For myself this is a constant battle. I live in a society where technology is readily available to myself at all times. Although it can be a blessing, it also can distract myself from the plans God has for my life. There have been countless occasions where instead of reading my bible, I have chosen to browse social media. What I planned on being brief, ends up being hours of wasted time browsing the internet or binge watching Netflix. Can anyone relate? You will never regret spending time with your creator, but I can tell you first hand that you will have regrets for choosing worldly things to fill up your time. The comforting thing to remember is that god pours out grace abundantly and has already forgiven our choice to look at worthless things instead of his face. It comforts me to know that I can ask for forgiveness and move forward. So that is what I encourage anyone to do who is struggling with this issue. Make it a constant prayer that god would help you to spend your time according to his will. Think of all the amazing adventures in store for you life when you hand your time and life over to him? Gods plans are truly more adventurous and exciting than any plans I have for myself (more on that in the future).

Keep Dreaming,
