I don't think it's any coincidence that many of our distractions as Christians today come through media. Radio, television, movies, video, cellular and also frequencies, that travel through the air, that effect us all around that we aren't really aware of. I've read of them affecting our minds and bodies such as radiation and microwaves.
During the church fast, I'm fasting television. Not totally!! LOL Mainly because I have a disorder called RTW (Random TV Watching) and I tend to relapse after a couple of hours and then OD. I think I'm going to limit myself to Turner Classic Movies and game shows and of course Christian television. I can still check the news and other things on the internet.

"ONE EYED MONSTER"
It's funny how I know exactly when the Holy Spirit is telling me, "That's not for you!". I could be listening to a song, reading something on the internet, growing more and more angry as I think about something I shouldn't, etc. Sure enough when I don't heed that gentle reminder, I pay for it in the end. Usually in the form of PEACE. Renewing the mind for me is a DAILY thing. I think it goes hand in hand with bearing our crosses :) It's all good...Jesus takes the heaviest load<3 <3 <3

The following is for my own accountability. Those of you who wish to join me feel free. You can never get enough spiritual food...ENJOY!!! This is the first year I'm reading the Word cover to cover. If I can read a 500 page novel in a week, surely I can read my 2200 pg bible in 52 weeks!! Daily reading schedule example:
1st of the month read:
~*Proverbs and Psalms read ENTIRELY by the end of each month*~
My yearly schedule is based on WWW.BibleGateWay.com
Before I begin my study I make sure my heart is right with prayer and worship.
I ask Him to give me Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge and Discernment.
If He leads me somewhere else before I actually study...so be it...I want more of HIM
FAITH COMES BY HEARING
AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD
