It’s so easy to get lost in a world filled with advise.
It’s so easy to get consumed by the amount of things we have at our fingertips.
It’s so easy to waste time when we have gadgets that take us anywhere we want.
It’s easy to start comparing when you have social media to peek at the “amazing” lives of others.
It’s easy to stare at a screen while your child wants you to look at them in the eyes.
All of it.
There’s gotta be more to life.
I want more out of it.
I want to wake up early, spend time with Jesus, sip on hot tea, greet my children with a smile and a good breakfast. I want to kiss my husband at the doorway as we pray together. I want to put all else a side and live in the moment with my homeschooled children. I want them to see that !!YES IM SO PROUD OF YOU! I want them to see my eyes connect with theirs. I want to know when God is calling me to change up my schedule to meet him. I want all of it!
But I can’t have that while the camera films for all to see. I can’t have that balance when I feel I HAVE to have a picture to share or post or having to constantly have a way to capture part of life.
I can’t have that AND not get sucked in. I hate that I have to keep my phone on. I hate that we have to be somewhere at a certain time. The days just slip away at a blink of an eye.
Many many times I question why it even matters to have a blog or an Instagram.
Why it’s even hard for me to just delete it all.
How would you react if it was all taken from you? It someone came and hit delete on it all. THERE! There lies your heart.
I’ll be honest. It’s easier to log in and preach something I’m not living up to. So this next month as we move I’m taking time to think hard and pray about all this.
Because it’s easier to just keep doing what everyone does… I don’t want easy, I want more.
