As a church, we did a "30-day Spiritual Bootcamp". We took 30 days and set them aside to SET ASIDE the things that we normally consume our time with.
Also know as:
Movies that aren't inspirational
Music that is not God-glorifying
And we took that time to study the bible, pray more often and do things that normally would get pushed aside.
For me, I did what was required but I also did things that didn't glorify me. I dont like to bring attention to myself normally, but this last 30 days I went above and beyond to bring glory to God and give special attention to those around me.
It was wonderful! Dont get me wrong, it was extremely difficult... Withdrawals were heavy the first week ;) But it put everything into perspective for me. It showed me what was truly important and what was just "time-fillers".
So, just to let you know, I have been gone on purpose and am back! with a new perspective.
