You may remember this post from last week about my plans to begin a computer-sabbatical on Sundays, pushing the Sunday Snippets posts to Mondays.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, I was unable to take sermon notes but I did, however, make a few mental notes yesterday afternoon during the sabbatical:
- Pressure off, peace on. Knowing no emails, Facebook posts, Yahoo updates, or anything else internet related would be checked, lifted a pressure I didn’t even know existed.
- Because many of my to-do’s are tied to the internet, that list melted into thin air but my need for rest was solidified. Yep, I napped!
- Time, conversations—practically everything—seemed to shift into a lower gear, allowing my activities (and rest) to soak in a little deeper.
And this morning? I awakened refreshed, ready to take on the day. A “cleansing” has taken place and the re-set button has kicked into gear!
Might the Lord be prompting you to try a computer-Sabbatical? If so, I encourage you to lean into the experience and receive the blessings that await.
The same information and contacts will be waiting online tomorrow…but today can never be retrieved.
