Back in the Dark Ages

Over Spring Break last week, I forgot my cell phone at a friend's dorm, which was in another city, about 2 hours away from where I'm from. So I was without a cell phone pretty much all of spring break, and I still don't have it. Thats 11 days without connection with friends and family, outside of the internet.
I don't know how people lived without cell phones. You don't really realize how much you are dependent on something until it's not there. I have all of these contacts stored in my phone that I couldn't get in touch with -people who I wanted to get together with over break, my ride back to Tulsa, rides in Tulsa, people who contact me regularly about my positions in Tulsa, etc. In one way it was hard to go without it, but in another way it was so freeing!
I feel like this is how it is with a lot of things in our lives. We are attached to something, and it is something good. But maybe God is telling you to go without it. Maybe he isn't just telling you, He puts you in a situation where you have to live without it. I'm not saying we should all give up our cell phones, but I am saying to check your heart. Are there things in your life you are holding on to that God wants you to give up? Take a chance, and enjoy the freedom it brings!

  1. I love this post!

    Several months ago my laptop went into the shop. Blog stalking from my iphone wasn't easy so I had a break. I DO think God wants us to check our hearts at times. My pastor shared a thought that I need to do a better job of doing....time is like tithing...where we put it shows what is the most important.

    I am your newest follower. I share lots of poems on my blog about how God uses us in the lives of our kiddos. I would love for you to come visit me when you get the chance. =)
