Often times I am tempted to shut it all down. Facebook. Blogging. All the online hoop-da-la. Ya know? It’s something I hear echoed all over the web. Moms wanting to simplify and slow the train down. I was musing over this in church of all places today. I was picturing myself coming home and deactivating my account for awhile. Taking a break.
But then I realized I need to not be an all or nothing woman. I’m like that. With eating. With reading my bible. All or nothing. That is what God is working on this woman’s heart lately. Consistency and balance.
I spent the day offline and it amazes me how refreshed I feel. The online world has a way of sucking the life right out of us. I was reminded doing my devotions the other day that God wants me to make Him my habitation. Psalm 91:9 says, For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation.
I want to make the Lord my habitation. He alone can satisfy this heart. He alone is worthy of my praise. He alone can fill me when I’m empty and feeling completely and utterly tapped out. Emotionally. Physically. Spiritually. All areas.
Habitation = Dwelling Place.
Deuteronomy 33:27 “The eternal God is thy dwelling-place, And underneath are the everlasting arms. And he thrust out the enemy from before thee, And said, Destroy.”
