No TV only God

Hello Bloggers,

Well for those of you that have read my previous post… YES I know it’s a long one. I made the promise to myself that the whole month I am spending looking after this house while the owners are away I will not watch any TV, NOT EVEN ONE SHOW… well I didn’t really make the promise to myself I made the promise to God, that I would take advantage of the month that I am here, to completely Immerse myself in his word, whether it be by reading the bible, reading Christian books, or blogging about Jesus, either way I am spending the time focusing on him. The last time I watched TV was on Wednesday the 7th of December, while the Thursday I forgot my promise and was about to switch the TV on, this little voice said NO remember your promise… well let me tell you something, under normal circumstances I would have been going crazy, not being able to chill in front of the TV to watch a show or 2.

Its not like that though, I am loving spending some alone time, to learn more and more about God, it really is so AMAZING that, everyday there is something new and something even greater, to learn about him. It is like I can’t get home quick enough to just be with God, its almost like a love affair so to speak, except its not secret. I want everyone to know that I am in a loving relationship with Jesus, and that if they just gave him the chance he so RIGHTLY DESERVES they could have that exact same relationship, each and every one of us have been ordained to do something magnificent for The Lord, and that is VERY EXCITING…

Well so far so good on my NO TV PROMISE, I will be sure to keep you all posted.

One more thing before I go I feel the need to list some of the blogs I follow, all these blogs below are an amazing source of inspiration, and some are of personal testimony, I great source of scripture and insight into the Bible and Jesus himself, so do yourself a favour and go and have a look why don’t you.

So here they are:

Lions Lead – This blog is truly inspirational, I have had the pleasure of meeting Lourens de Lange, who is the man behind Lions Lead, I have read some of his blogs before this blog even began, and loved it so much that I sent it to all my friends to read, and it ended up being posted on a very well known South African Christian magazines website, I truly believe that God has the most awesome plan for his life and I am almost certain that part of the plan is for him to write, think about it why would God bless him with such an AMAZING talent if it was not his intention to make use of it. So do yourself a favour go and take a look at this blog I PROMISE YOU that you will be blessed, just like I was.

All Things Beautiful – While I have never met this lady, I have been inspired by every single one of her posts, I found something from each one that I could apply to my OWN life which has helped me tremendously, she also happens to be the sister of the Lourens who writes the blog above, so if his character is anything to go by and his relationship with the Lord is anything to go by then I am sure she is just as Great. Each and every one of her blogs if God Focused which is fantastic, and you are bound to find some inspiration there too.

Allowing Christ to change y life – Well what can I say about this one, I find that every one of her blogs to be inspirational, she has had some hard issues in life that needed dealing with and she has come out a strong passion filled warrior for Jesus, more than that I also have never met her, in fact I don’t even know her name( I am sure if I search through her blog I will find it) I feel this connection to her, I don’t know what it is but it’s there, also very insightful inspirational

Well these 3 blogs are the 3 blogs that I felt the need to mention again, I am speaking from experience here that if you feel somewhat confused, down, or just needing answers you will find something to inspire you in one of these blogs.

I have one small request, if anyone reading this will re-blog it, not because I want people to read my blog, but because I want people to be as inspired by Jesus as I am.

Have a blessed weekend fellow Bloggers

  2. Nicel to meet you Michele. 🙂 , you really are an inspiration, not just for me im sure for many people.

  3. Thank you for writing this post! It has helped to add some insight into my own struggle regarding television. You see, I am contemplating whether TV has a place at all in a Christian home.

    In light of certain passages such as Colossians 3:1-4 where Paul admonishes, “Set your affection on things above, not on things of the earth”, and that “we are dead, and our life is hid with Christ in God”, I wonder, do the earthly themes of many TV programs really have a place in our home?

    • Bernadette, I thought you’d like to know, I’ve added “My Journey With God” to my blog roll. I really appreciate your posts and I hope that others will as well. God bless!

      • Thank you so much, I really want this blog to help someone going through similar issues as me, I feel the more people see it the bigger impact God will have. I will add you to mine as well.
