Priorities

"Seek the Kingdom above all else and live righteously and He will give you everything you need" Matthew 6:33



Maybe you have noticed some silence from my end of the social networking... maybe you haven't. For those of you that have, its been exactly ten days. Ten days of no facebook and no twitter.

My biggest reason for this break from the social network was time. I realized just how much time I really do spend facebook and twitter stalking.

I am not against social networking at all, I am actually quite excited to get back to it. But when my social life (real or through the portal of the world wide web) is so time consuming that my time with Jesus is affected, something has to change.

So, I did it. I turned it off, for ten days... that wasn't the original plan. The plan was to make sure I was up to date on my One Year Bible and back in line with my priorities. And I guess ten days is what I needed.

This experience has been crazy. Social networking has become so important in our culture, I felt so out of the loop and i honestly had no idea what was going on in anyone else's life. But, at the same time, I felt so close to God.

So I am not writing this to seem "holy" or to make it appear that I am anything special. Actually I feel quite embarrassed that I even had to take these measures to get back on track spiritually.

But I just want to encourage you to make sure your priorities are lined up. If your behind in your bible reading, turn of the TV. If you can't seem to find time to pray, put away you phone for a while. Lets keep the main things the main things, and continue to change the world together.

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
