I need to stop!

Ok, Facebook is taking over my life! I need help... serious help. :-)

I've been obsessive compulsive with an application called 'Jedi vs. Sith'. So much so that I had to set a goal for myself, so that once I achieved it, I could feel better about walking away! I achieved that goal today, but in the meantime my blogging and my writing have suffered. I've also not tended to my preperation for tonights caregroup (Bible study) as I should have. Fortunately I still have some time to ready myself for that.

For today I would like to ask for everyone's prayers that I GET A GRIP ON REALITY! :-) God has been working on me in the area of self discipline of late, and I think this is a testament to how the enemy can, and will, step up the temptation in peoples lives when God is moving. I just need to slow myself down, take the deep breath, and turn from the temptations... (that sounds so easy). I need to remember, and act upon the verse that says, "But he said to me,My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Corinthians 12:9-10, ESV)

May God grant each of you a peace and grace filled weekend. :-)

Verse for today:
1 Corinthians 9:24-27, ESV
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, [2] lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

Oh priorities are so hard...and so necessary. I'll pray that it all falls into place.

You'll love Tony Dungy's book.

Stupid Facebook! That place is pretty wicked, isn't it? Once I'd been there a little while, it lost some of it's glam, but there's always something new to do! Ugh!

Hope to see a musical monday post from you soon!
