Break from the computer

A blog I am subscribed to, called “What the duck“, brings a laugh to my day and sometimes provides something to ponder. I’ve included one of their recent comics below for this blog.

I’m sure we all need more breaks from the computer than we actually take. This idea really enforces our need for community, rest, and adventure. These are a few things I have always longed for, but have rarely sought after too much. Tonight is our second monthly gathering for Digital Disciples, a ministry that I started that pushes me more into “real community”. Although it has been quite a bit of work to get the ministry going, having Daryl fly in from Atlanta tonight to check it out and discuss starting a group in that city is thrilling!

Andy Stanley suggests that “We have to find that place of healthy tension between being confident in our calling and knowing that we cannot complete the mission without God’s intervention.” Sometimes we get so confident in what we are doing, that we rarely take a break from it and think about whether or not God might have something else in store. That is very risky, according to our culture. You have to try something without money being a factor, sometimes without people knowing or being applauded for it, and sacrifice time and energy that comfortably get us through our day. If you haven’t tried something like this yet, consider this a dare. Take a few minutes, get away from the computer, and think about what God might want to do with _______.

PRAYING for you as you think outside the box about what God might have for you to do. PRAISING God for providing a location for our gathering this evening.

    That’s the truth, man. Often I find myself wondering if what I’m doing is just good or of God. Thanks for the reminder.
