What are you taking in? I don’t really care about your food choices, but am concerned about your media, listening, reading, looking choices. This has been swirling around all week and the more it swirled, the more I kept hearing about choices people close to me made that didn’t prove to be helpful. So, what are you taking in?
In preparation for this week, I would like you to think about the media you regularly allow into your mind. It might be books you read, podcasts you listen to, music you stream, websites you visit, can’t miss TV programming – whatever you take in on a regular basis.
Secondly, consider the feelings and responses these things stir in you. Negativity, joy, delight, sadness, anxiety, worry, fear, courage….how would you describe the tenor of your day after participating in the media that streams through your mind.
Looking forward to a wonderful week in Jesus! Let’s remember the people around us who are faced with terrible tragedy. Perhaps your community is like ours where death has visited in really tragic ways. Together we can help bear the burden by praying for comfort of the Holy Spirit to surround those who are filled with sadness and grief.
