I never could understand why we try to fill our voids with temporary things that were never meant to take the place only Jesus can. We’ve all had days when we wanted to do nothing but stare at a screen for rest and relaxation. You’d think we’d learn, that we always leave that finished movie or video game feeling just as empty as before. I wonder what our lives would look like if we would minimize – or even eliminate – all unnecessary media and entertainment. Not because they’re necessarily wrong .. but simply out of a desire to not waste precious time meant for Jesus.
I believe the more you press into the heart and Word of God, the more you will find what you were always looking for; peace that passes all understanding, joy that exceeds circumstances, strength that stands through storms, courage that doesn’t flinch, and love that never runs out. And as you feast on the real thing, you will look at the artificial and say, “Ain’t nobody got time fer dat.”
