I know I have an addiction. Facebook,
Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest – I love
them all. But they are ruining my love
life with God – something that is so
important and precious to me.
There have been times when I come
home, tell myself I want to spend
quality time with God, but also
tell myself I can do it “later”
before bed time. Somehow
my addiction leads me to
spend hours upon hours on my
phone without even realizing it.
The next thing you know I’m, “too
tired” to spend time with God.
I tell myself, “tomorrow morning I will
My Phone Addiction is
wake up early and do it. Sorry God.”
The world doesn’t shut off at any
point during the night, so I wake up to
a lineup of notifications. I quickly forget
my promise to God and binge
right into it before both eyes are
even fully open. I know it’s not
healthy. I know that if I want to have
a healthy relationship with God, I have
to figure out ways to stop.
