Saturday I spoke of how disillusioned I have become of my excessive Internet use.
Today I would like to dive a little deeper into some of the thoughts I have been having about said Internet usage.
I range back and forth constantly from……
let’s throw the dang computer out the window and become Amish!!!
how can I use the Internet for God’s glory?
perhaps I should only use the Internet for email and occasional necessary research
who in tarnation gives a crap!?
I think the real dilemma comes down to……is my excessive Internet use pulling me away from my priorities?
What in the world are my priorities?
I have had to really sit down and think about what my priorities are…….
1. To really know God, and to serve Him.
2. To be a fantastic wife.
3. To be a wonderful mother.
That’s all I could think of that really matters to me in the grand scheme of things. So, then my next question is:
Does my excessive use of the Internet help me fulfill any of these priorities?
NO. AND. YES.
Which leads to another question:
If I stopped using the Internet could I still fulfill these priorities?
Which leads to my next question:
Can I reduce my Internet usage?
I know I should, and it would probably be easier than I think.
Which leads to my final question:
How do I decide which parts to reduce?
This is really the clincher question. And the one I have been struggling with the most. I’m sure once I decide which parts (if not all) to purge of my Internet usage I won’t miss them one bit, it’s just making that jump that is the hard part.
Wow, after reading that last paragraph–I think I sound like an addict.
This is a serious problem folks.
Tune in tomorrow for the conclusion (I hope) of my Internet Dilemma 2008.
