I don’t know about y’all, but ever since I decided to make May a month of prayer in those dead moments (read post here!), now when I’m on my phone during that time, my subconscious is already flinching to say no to it. In fact, last Thursday, I was so sick of how much time I spent on my phone that I deleted instagram from my phone on Friday. It’s so sad that I had to delete it to not be tempted by it, but that’s reality. My friend Lara Casey does this and I was so encouraged when she first mentioned it. First of all, because I’m not the only one who has trouble with this. And secondly, that she did something about it instead of simply accepting that that will always being an issue.
Remember my post on creating habits and breaking bad ones? Add a step for the habits you want to break. Make it harder instead of easier to do. It might just stop you or at least slow you down. Having to re-download it will keep you from “popping on for a quick check.”
And if you are afraid of missing something, don’t be. You can scroll through to see everything you missed if you like. This might take some time, but less time than popping it open throughout the day to see a handful of updates. And you might even realize, it’s ok to not see everything. ; )
Y’all, I truly believe God has something big planned for this month for us! One simple way he showed me is that my friend Kristin Schmucker posted the same day a Scripture challenge for the month of May! You can read the details here. I am going to be reading through Proverbs since it has 31 chapters. I welcome y’all to join me in this too! Filling our minds with truth as we pray is powerful combination.
You don’t need to have the prayer journal to pray. Just have a good list of things to pray for handy. If you would like a prayer journal for the challenge, order before Wednesday and you’ll have a few days after the month starts! And if you are planning to order 5 or more for Mother’s Day or friend gifts or small group, our Easter coupon code (5ORMORE) of $4 off each journal ends Wednesday.
